LABELLE, FL. -- Google is asking local governments and residents to express their interest in a experimental high-speed internet fiber optic trial, and to provide information about their community by completing a request for information.
From a blog post Google says:
Imagine sitting in a rural health clinic, streaming three-dimensional medical imaging over the web and discussing a unique condition with a specialist in New York. Or downloading a high-definition, full-length feature film in less than five minutes. Or collaborating with classmates around the world while watching live 3-D video of a university lecture. Universal, ultra high-speed Internet access will make all this and more possible. We've urged the FCC to look at new and creative ways to get there in its National Broadband Plan and today we're announcing an experiment of our own.If you'd like a Google fiber optic trial in your community, complete the section of the request link below.
