Kansas City, Mo. – Third District Councilman, Jermaine Reed, leads final push for Google Fiber with a pre-registration event at Gregg Klice Community Center on Saturday, September 8th from 3pm to 5pm. Reed coordinated the final push event to get 3rd District residents signed up before the September 9th pre-registration deadline.
“With the 48-hour deadline approaching, it’s vital that residents have all opportunities to sign up and get their questions about Google Fiber answered,” said Councilman Jermaine Reed. “My office has coordinated volunteer teams to go door-to-door to sign up neighbors who don’t have internet access so that everyone has a chance to get this technology.”
The Councilman also voiced radio ads, which will air on KPRS Hot 103 Jamz throughout the day on Saturday. The “final push” pre-registration drive will be at the Gregg Klice Community Center at 1700 John Buck O’Neil Way in Kansas City, Missouri at 3pm.
“We’ve worked with local organizations to help residents pay the $10 pre-registration fee, so there will be no barriers to signing up,” said Reed.
Google divided Kansas City into FiberHoods and set a goal for each one. Google will only provide service in FiberHoods that meet their pre-registration goal. Residents have to pre-register to qualify their neighborhood. Several 3rd District neighborhoods have already met their goals and are now “green.”
You can find out more information on the pre-registration process at fiber.google.com.
