Welcome to Google, Kansas

Topeka ‘renames’ itself ‘Google, Kansas’

In a formal proclamation last Monday, Topeka, Kansas, mayor Bill Bunten announced his city will be known as ‘Google, Kansas.’ The unofficial name change will last through the end of March.

The unusual move comes as several U.S. cities elbow for a spot in Google’s new ‘Fiber for Communities’ program. The Web giant is going to install new Internet connections in unannounced locations, giving those communities Internet speeds 100 times faster than those elsewhere, with data transfer rates faster than 1 gigabit per second.
