Since then, my husband has been doing everything that he can to raise awareness in our community; so that we can get Google Fiber where we live. He has become an Ambassador,getting the word out that Google Fiber is coming! He has gone to meetings, at the Google Fiber building, worked his butt off, got his company involved in working with Google Fiber, and much more. And, finally the day comes when he gets this email:
From: Google Fiber Team <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Date: Mon, Aug 20, 2012 at 4:57 PM
Subject: Congratulations, your area is going to get some Fiber!
your area is going to get some Fiber!
Because you and your neighbors pre-registered,
your fiberhood has reached its goal. That means
you'll be one of the first neighborhoods in the nation
with ultra high-speed Internet. But there's more you
can do — the construction order for Kansas City
will be determined by your fiberhood’s ranking on
September 9. The more households to pre-register,
the earlier we will begin connecting your fiberhood.
You can help bring Fiber to your area even sooner
by encouraging others to join up, too.
After September 9th, we will announce when you
should expect us in your fiberhood and send more
details about choosing your package. Until then,
check your fiberhood’s progress and join us at one
of our local Kansas City events.
Thanks again for helping to bring Fiber to Kansas City.

Boy, was he ever excited when he showed the email to me! But his work doesn't end here. He just came home, today, from a meeting at the Google Fiber store, learning new ways to help get the word out about how this can help so many people.
One thing that we want to raise awareness on, is that this isn't just for the schools and libraries, but also for the homeschooling families. Can you imagine how fast it would be to do the research you needed, on Google Fiber, instead of your normal internet speed? How fast could you look up the history of the Presidents? If you live in the Kansas City area, and are able to sign up for Google Fiber, why wouldn't you? We're ecstatic about Google Fiber coming to our house, and can't wait! Let's do this! For the community, for the schools, for the libraries, for the homeschoolers!
Until Next Time,
