Google announces Google Fiber for Communities

In February Google announced plans to build experimental, ultra-high speed
broadband networks. Over the past several months, their team’s been hard
at work reviewing the nearly 1,100
community responses to the request for information—not to mention
the nearly 200,000 responses from individuals across the U.S.

Throughout
this process, one message has come through loud and clear: people are
hungry for better and faster Internet access. With that in mind, today they are launching a new site called Google
Fiber for Communities, where you can learn more about fiber
networks and keep up-to-date on this project. You’ll also be able to advocate
for common-sense federal and local policies that would help fiber
deployments nationwide.

Google also wanted to thank every community
and individual that submitted a response, posted a
YouTube video, started a website, joined a rally or otherwise let
their voice be heard. They were so honored by the grassroots enthusiasm
across the country for this project that they put together a short video
to say thank you:

As explained back
in March, they plan to name this target community or communities by
the end of the year.
