Back in February, Google announced that it would begin installing and testing a high-speed fiber-optic network that would supply cities and customers with internet at speeds up to 1 gigabit per second. Naturally, interest was (and still is) high, and cities have been clamoring to get on Google's shortlist of test cities. How do you make yourself stand out from the crowd? Five cities stood out: two renamed themselves, one city's mayor jumped in a frigid lake, another mayor went for a swim with sharks, and one city created the Google logo with glow sticks. Read about them here (with videos of two of the antics).

Think your city would be a great candidate for Google Fiber? Got a better idea than these five had? What would you do for a Klondike Bar Google Fiber?

Albuquerque is also trying to become the test site for this. We're just pitching our wonderful tech savvy infrastructure...
