Virginia Beach May Test Google Ultra-High Speed Broadband

Published: March 12, 2010
Google is planning to build and test ultra-high speed broadband networks in one or more trial locations across the country. Google’s stated intention is for these proposed fiber networks to deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most American’s have access to today with 1gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections.

To be considered for participation in this trial, the City of Virginia Beach must complete a Request for Information (RFI); as part of this process. In order to gauge community support, Virginia Beach residents are asked to participate in a survey, to be completed no later than March 23.

To participate in the survey, please visit www.VBgov.com/surveys and select the Google Fiber for Communities survey. Citizens can learn more about the Google Fiber for Communities trial by visiting www.google.com/appserve/fiberrfi/public/overview.
