Yeah it's getting kind of nut's, I sent my city info on this on day 1. I don't know if they did anything with it, of course my city while close to Atlanta (somewhat), is on the small side. However; with Atlanta being in the top range (top 3 I think), of cities which have made it a big thing to upgrade it's technology goes two ways. You can (or Google) look at it as the area is already upgraded to a point, or be intrigued that it was one of the clearwire/sprint intro cities, and in that list and think wow that would be a very visible place to put this as well.
Where can i go to try and get my city in on this? We may only have a population of 300, but Verizon has been screwing us for over a decade at promising broadband and never delivering. I really HATE the fact that all this new stuff gets put into big cities and crap that already have broadband and competition that keeps prices down and reasonable, while those that dont live in a big city get shafted by the one and only broadband provider, or not even get access to broadband since the company claims there is not enough demand. Funny that Verizon determines demand by how many people respond to their website looking for broadband connectivity, yet most people dont even have internet access cause dialup just plain sucks and costs to darn much. Pay for the phone line and an ISP and you are up to 35 bucks which is INSANE for 33.6k connection.
If google goes and puts their new fiber stuff in smaller cities and links a bunch of them together they would really be helping those communities thrive and grow instead of making the rich bastards in the cities have more goodies to play with like they dont already have enough.

I feel for you Drago - a 33.6k connection is pretty much unheard of nowadays. Hopefully with time, broadband will be made available to all neighborhoods across the country. I'm sure Google's entry into the market will prove to be a step in that direction.
I want it!
Wow I didn't even know you could still get a 36k connection. I haven't been on anything slower than 56k and that was in 1998 when I built my first amd athlon box and oc'ed it to 1.3 ghz and thougt I was a pimp playing SC and Broodwar on it fast forward and I have 10 down 8 up gotta love silicon valley. Sorry for your pain.
Doesn't seem to be that cold xD
