Now that the agreements are signed, are you wondering what you can do to spur Google Fiber to build out its network to your area and bring its high speed Internet and television service to your house at long last?

“But,” perhaps you are saying, “I’m just one person! What can I do to bend the will of a global corporate behemoth? I’m just going to stay on the coach and keep shoving ice cream at my face.”

Wellsir, buck up! You may have the ability to draw the company’s attention after all, according to Prairie Village city administrator Quinn Bennion.

During a report to the Prairie Village City Council on Monday, Bennion relayed a message from a Google representative about how the company is mapping its next build out moves.

“They mentioned that as you hear from residents about wanting Google to come to their areas, encourage them to go to the Fiber Space and register,” Bennion said. “They won’t be registering for a Fiberhood, but Google still uses those address points to determine where the next Fiberhoods will go forward.”

Which is to say: Want Google Fiber to come to your city faster? Take a trip to Westport Road and State Line and put your address in the computer.

Do it. Do it. Is it done yet? Do it.
