Just a PSA: the city has put together a website to promote its bid to host Google's proposed fiber network, which would allow internet connections over 100 times faster than anyone has access to today. The bid is highly competitive, with many cities already in the ring and devising their own strategies to stand out. Famously, Topeka, Kansas recently changed its name to Google (for the period of a month) to woo the internet giant's fiber network.
St. Louis's website is appropriately titled "St. Louis Wants Google Fiber".
There, you may submit a nomination of St. Louis for the fiber network, record a video, or drop a comment tag on a map of the city showing your support.
It'd be great if a Rustbelt city like St. Louis could host experimental technologies like this. Go on the website and vote, record, and comment!
