    (engadget.com) - Want Google to bring its Gigabit internet service to your area? You'll have to convince your town to follow Selena Gomez's sage advice: If you want it, come and get it. Speaking at a Washington DC conference, Google Fiber's VP of Access Services Milo Medin said: "If you make it easy, we will come. If you make it hard, enjoy your Time Warner Cable." Chances are, you don't want to stay with TWC like most people, so take note of the usual reasons that hamper Medin and his team from bringing Fiber to particular locations....

    Hilarious, but even in places where TWC is the primary source of high speed Internet there are always alternatives if one hates TWC that much.

    It will be interesting as Google Fiber rolls out to see if they start to accumulate the negative reputation that all service providers inevitably do.

    Yeah, I could settle for 1.5 Mbps down/726 kbps up Verizon DSL, but I don't really consider that an alternative.

    I wish they'd do the Rural challenge.

    I know they won't though since I'me pretty sure they want more than one subscriber per road mile.

    I'm hoping Chucky and his cohorts will take on the rural areas with reliable WISPs.

    It's times like this that I'm glad I'm in Cincinnati.

    I'm in Northern Kentucky and the fibers are all around me, but CinBell has dodged us because our subdivision is all underground utilities.

    Google could buy CinBell for less than one month's food budget in their cafeterias, that'd make me happy.
