Signing up for Google Fiber isn't simply a matter of scheduling an installation appointment. Google divided up the two Kansas Cities (Missouri and Kansas) into 202 "fiberhoods" of about 800 homes each, and asked residents to preregister and plunk down a $10 fee to express their interest.
Google has divided parts of Kansas City, Mo., and Kansas City, Kan., into various "fiberhoods," and asked people in each of those areas where the service will be available to register, and pay a $10 deposit, if they are interested in acquiring it.
We’ve divided Kansas City into small communities we call "fiberhoods." To get service, each fiberhood needs a critical mass of their residents to pre-register. The fiberhoods with the highest pre-registration percentage will get Google Fiber first.
