As part of the Google Fiber initiative in Kansas City (both Missouri and Kansas sides) is the idea of fiberhoods. A fiberhood is a neighborhood with enough pre-registrations for Google's ultra-fast fiber networks to make it worthwhile to install. Pre-registration requires a $10 commitment. Google agreed to start their installation in Kansas City, Kansas using the rank of pre-registrations as of September 9, 2012. Unless there's a huge surge in the next few hours, that will put the historic Hanover Heights neighborhood as first in line. Not so coincidentally, Hanover Heights is across the street from Google's Kansas City office and fiber showcase. There's nothing like a good demonstration to get people excited about ultra high speed services.
The number of pre-registrations required for a fiberhood isn't an even percentage for all areas. Some areas with registrations as low as 5% have met their goal, while other neighborhoods have goals of 25%. In the shadow of the deadline, some neighborhoods took to campaigning with fairs and more. Having a fiberhood not only means you could sign up for fiber access in the neighborhood, it means Google will wire public institutions like schools, hospitals, and libraries for free.
