Huntsville, Alabama will seek high-speed Internet to become 'GIG City' starting in 2015

I am really excited about this. Huntsville is a very tech savvy city, and really wanted google fiber, but didn't get the bid, so they are doing it on their own. I live outside huntsville, but already have fiber to my home through a local co-op, but the local tier 2 isp infrastructure can't handle gigabit just yet, so I'm hoping this will help.  Anyone else know of any other cities that are pushing for fiber?
