The Kansas City Business Journal‘s article Google Fiber starts sign-up on Missouri side, Alyson Raletz reported that those interested in the service in Crown Center have until March 21 to sign up for the ultra-fast Internet.

Google Inc.’s ultra-fast Internet and video network is preparing to light up on the Missouri side of the state line next month.

In November, Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) started to officially activate its fiber-optic network, beginning with the Spring Valley and Hanover Heights neighborhoods in Kansas City, Kan., near 45th Avenue and State Line Road.
On Monday, Google reminded potential customers living in four other areas in KCK to sign up for the service. Those “fiberhoods,” which is how Google designates the geographic areas for its installations, include Delaware Ridge, Painted Hills, Open Door and Arrowhead.
