Google is planning to launch an experiment that they hope will make Internet access better and faster for everyone. It plans to test ultra-high speed broadband networks in one or more trial locations across the country.
Its 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.
Google indicates it will make the capital investment required to offer residential and business services at competitive pricing in the trial communities that they select, said Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Kevin Holsapple in a news release.
For Los Alamos County to be considered, the county government must apply by March 26.
The Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce believes that Los Alamos can make a strong case in many of the criteria areas Google is interested in, Holsapple said. The county is already evaluating the question of whether to apply and will be making a decision about this soon.
Two Ways to Help Right Now:
Google wants to hear from individual citizens, businesses and other community organizations who want them to consider our community as a trial location. Go to the Google Web site at www.google.com/app
