Google is planning to launch an experiment that they hope will make Internet access better and faster for everyone. They plan to test ultra-high speed broadband networks in one or more trial locations across the country. Their 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. The service will be offered at a competitive price to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people.
From now until March 26th, Google is asking interested municipalities to provide information about their communities through a Request for information (RFI), which they will use to determine where to build the network.
