Google experimental fiber network greeted with 'over 1100 community & 194k individuals responses'

Google says the response from communities and individuals has been tremendous and creative for their ‘plans to build experimental, ultra high-speed broadband networks.’ “We’ve ‘received more than 1,100 community and 194k responses from individuals.

Google says the response from communities and individuals has been tremendous and creative for their ‘plans to build experimental, ultra high-speed broadband networks.’ “We’ve ‘received more than 1,100 community and 194k responses from individuals. We're thrilled to see this kind of excitement, and we want to humbly thank each and every community and individual for taking time to participate. If one message has come through loud and clear, it's this: people across the country are hungry for better and faster Internet access[…]So what's next? Over coming months, we'll be reviewing responses to determine where to build. As we narrow down our choices, we'll be conducting site visits, meeting with local officials and consulting with third-party organizations. Based on a rigorous review of the data, we will announce our target community or communities by end of the year. Of course, we're not going to be able to build in every interested community — our plan is to reach a total of at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people with this experiment,” says Google.
