Google Launches 'Google Fiber For Communities'

You might remember a few months back when communities across the country went nuts competing for Google's 1GB fiber internet; cities changed their name to Google and mayors swam with sharks.

Though it's been three months since these stunts were carried out, Google has yet to make a decision on what town will be part of the pilot program for it's project. Google says it won't name the winner (or winners!) at the end of the year.

However, the search giant isn't resting on its laurels until D-day. The company this week launched 'Google Fiber for Communities,' a Website designed to keep folks up to date on the project, educate people on the technology and thank them for all their efforts. It also provides tips on how you can help bring fiber Internet to your community.

In total, 1,100 communities and 200,000 individuals responded to Google's call for a test site for the project. Check out the video below to see some of their submissions and thank you messages from Google employees.
