Area communities want Google Fiber

March Gallagher, deputy director for economic development at Ulster County, explains efforts to get Google to pick Kingston as the test city for Google Fiber, an initiative to bring ultra high-speed Internet access to a community. Google says the broadband network will be "100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today, over 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections."

Meanwhile, Facebooking Woodstock residents Ralph Schiano and David McDonald are rallying their troops.

There are many other efforts elsewhere in the country. Check out this video of Sen. Al Franken:

Well, is up to you, isn't it?
