It should be interesting to see where Google goes with this. It needs a ~50k market, decent tie in to the nation's data infrastructure, and visibility, which makes Raleigh-are a good candidate imo. Verizon and AT&T presence would be nice for a direct comparison to how much better Google is...

Officially:
"Finally, we want to be clear that this initiative is a one-shot deal that will have no bearing on which municipalities are chosen to participate in our experimental ultra-high-speed broadband project, to which Google, Kansas has been just one of many communities to apply."
