Google has a site up about the project: http://www.fiberforcommunities.com
It looks like their focus is to pass legislation to include conduit construction in transportation projects.

Gigabit fiber is already available here, just not everywhere yet. CityLink is a local company that cares about local interests, and has been instrumental in bringing modern connectivity to Albuquerque. The more support CityLink can get from the community, the more CityLink can expand it's network. Show your support by emailing us at FiberOpticToMyHome@citylinkfiber.com or FiberOpticToMyBusiness@citylinkfiber.com . CityLink is ready to grow services out to meet your needs.

I support the Google project for a variety of reasons, but I think one of the big issues we found was how to make (high end) broadband more affordable, which looks like a cycle of helping a variety of users understand its value which could drive up adoption and help drive down costs.

I'm hoping we can build on conversations like this to help start educating more people and building awareness; whether Citylink, Google or some other company is the carrier/provider, the whole city will benefit from more knowledge.

Google's broadband initiative will take to the end of the year to announce target communities. That's a good 6 to 9 months from now.

If Albuquerque is selected from the 600 applicants, there will be planning and roll out of fiber construction network beyond this time. Google fiber could take until 2012, at the earliest, to start showing up at a very small number of homes.

If people want fiber optic speeds for internet, sooner rather than later, look at helping to build community support for Citylink now.

Google Says 600 Communities Seek Broadband Project (Update2)

March 26 (Bloomberg) -- Google Inc., planning to build a local broadband network as a test project, has received more than 600 responses from communities interested in the effort.

More than 190,000 individuals also have requested information, Google said today on its blog. The company announced plans last month to build a fiber-optic network that would serve between 50,000 and 500,000 people, providing connections that are 100 times faster than current networks.

“As we narrow down our choices, we’ll be conducting site visits, meeting with local officials and consulting with third- party organizations,” James Kelly, a product manager, said in the blog posting. “Based on a rigorous review of the data, we will announce our target community or communities by the end of the year.”

Michael any person you meet on the internet is a Professional Web Designer, webdesign isn't a big deal.what I was implying is its not always that simple to continually update a website just cause your service area has improved.Your missing the point. but to correct you I'm not here to defend said company but more less to defend small biz, and You seem to have more gripes with City Link then anyone else so it kinda pisses me off,btw after you fill out the fios thing for verison there is a 2nd form for notification when its in your area.
