Council goes for high-speed Google

-A A +A
By The Staff

At a meeting in White Rock Tuesday, county council will consider applying to participate in the Google Fiber Initiative, an experimental “open access” network that will offer fiber-to-home connections. The Google service proposes to operate at gigabit per second speeds, 100 times faster than current home service. County staff believes Los Alamos is especially suited for the test, because of its high educational levels, affluence and advanced scientific and technological interests, among other factors.

Two other business items relate to the Diamond Drive Project. Council will be briefed on the advisability of replacing existing overpasses on Diamond Drive with overpasses that are compatible with the American Disabilities Act and adding an additional ADA-compliant overpass at the intersection of Diamond and Trinity.

Council will also consider approving a budget and awarding a contract for the utilities work for Phase 5 of the Diamond Drive Project.

Rep. Jeanette Wallace, R-Los Alamos, Sandoval and Santa Fe, and County Lobbyist Scott Scanland are scheduled to brief the council early in the meeting on the recent special legislative session.

Seven items are on the consent agenda that could be approved in a single motion.
