From the NM Biz Journal:City officials are discussing the term “Google 66,” an homage to Route 66, which runs through Albuquerque. But this would be an information superhighway, said John Garcia,…Continue

CityLink will be presenting at http://www.fiberfete.com/website/index.php?option=com_content&v... along with Minnie Ingersoll, Product Manager for Google Gigabit. I see this as a great chance to speak one on one abou why Albuquerque should be Googled. By partnering with CityLink, Google for Albuquerque is a "ready to go" project.

and again no one seems to know the answer to this

"I got a question for all the google isp fanboys/girls FIOS was the first implementation like this was done by Verizon can any of you tell me what the first city to get it was and how many years it took? fyi I already know the correct answer I just want to see if any of you have any real concept of the time and money involved or if you even remember the first city to get it.

OK, the security concern seems reasonable, but don't forget that I didn't originally ask for your network maps at all. All I wanted was a reasonably up to date coverage area map. I'm not sure why those would need to be approved by anyone but you, or, for that matter, why approval should take *another* 30 days. For what it's worth, I've been trying to evangelize your service for may months now, and the fact that no-one can tell whether they are even in your coverage area without filling out a form that requires contact information is the main stumbling block.

CityLink Maps, The reason we haven't posted them is for security issues. We have some traffic (users of our fiber) that require us to be reasonably protective of the specific network route. We will be posting proposed routes, and for existing routes we will simply provide a bounded coverage area. We hope to have these maps cleared by legal and our clients shortly. Shortly ~= 30 days

Whew, and yes -- thanks for providing the full link, couldn't read it before!

We can still use nominations, fans, supporters, surveys and idea suggestions -- visit http://sites.google.com/site/highspeedabq/take-action if you'd like to help out!

But/And... this (really) isn't all about Google. Part of the issue I think City Link, most other ISPs, and anyone involved in the pushing sees is that there's a lot of education to be done about the value (and potential cost savings) in moving to fiber. That's an effort that will need to include businesses, residents, developers... and others alike.

I'm not a fanboy of Google by any means, but I'm a potential customer for any broadband providers in the city. In order to determine whether I can even purchase CityLink (or Google or anyone else), I need to know if they service my area. I don't think it's an unreasonable to ask providers for coverage maps, and if those providers want any customers, they will provide them.

Thats right citylink take time out of a biz day and make a map for your service area. Not to sound like a dick Mike but remember the people at City Link still have a biz to run they aren't just some home user arguing good and bad on a blog.

Well, it's been about a month, and CityLink hasn't published their network maps (on Google Earth or otherwise) yet. I'll repeat my invitation to just edit and update the Google Map that I created: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=1106511018... It is a public map, anyone can edit it to bring it up to date.

I understand all this but what I'm saying is most the people here are posting as a residential user, not seeing many biz's, posting about it, I personally see 0 gain in all this its just another way for google to be able to monitor and report to the athorities on things people do after all they 100% cooperate with any local and federal police in cases that involve the RIAA and MPAA along with other area's that would otherwise cause the average home users internet exp to be tracked more, I mean hell they cache websites that whole Idea scares me personally.
