Help Somerville Get on Google's High Speed Network

Just got the following email from City of Somerville. If you live in Somerville, MA read the below and help get us on Google's high speed network:

HELP SOMERVILLE WIN THE OPPORTUNITY TO PILOT GOOGLE’S HIGH-SPEED NETWORK! The City of Somerville is seeking the opportunity to be included as a trial area for Google’s ultra-high speed network and we need your help! The network, said by Google to "deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today," will be offered at a competitive price to a small number of trial locations across the country. Along with the City submitting a Request For Information (RFI), Google is asking local residents to express their interest in a trial in their community. Your support will strengthen Somerville’s case to be included in the pilot. Please help make a case for Somerville by submitting a nomination online here: http://www.google.com/appserve/fiberrfi/public/options

Hmmm... Somerville wasn't attractive to Verizon. Why would Google jump for them instead?

Not sure we can assume Somerville wasn't attractive to Verizon just because they are not here yet. Either way I would be thrilled if either Verizon or Google could get me faster access!
