Google Fiber has been making a lot of local and national headlines lately for a contest they are holding to bring high speed data to “one or more” communities. Tempe has decided they want to be that community.
According to a Google Fiber web page: “We plan to test ultra-high speed broadband networks in one or more trial locations across the country. Our networks will deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today, over 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections.”
Tempe has a ton of technology companies, an amazing research community at ASU along with a huge student population and is a very mobile community. Google Fiber seems like a great fit. I am pretty excited to have been asked to help the City of Tempe with this fun project. Please join us in helping to spread the word about the Google Fiber contest. Complete details and information on how you can help can be found on the City of Tempe’s Google Fiber page.
If you have any questions on how you can help, please feel free to give me a call!
