Google registers 100+ domain names related to getting more people online.

Over the past week the company has registered over 100 domain names including various state names and variations of “Get Online”.
The domains follow these patterns:
The domains seem to cover all 50 states.
This may also be part of the company’s lobbying and PR efforts to help people get fast broadband connections. Although it’s not clear if Google is the registrant, a company that registers domains for Google also registered HowFastIsMyBrowser.com at the same time.
One of Google’s registrations might irk a rather large ISP: GetAmericaOnline.com
