Google Fiber rally planned for SLO
March 7, 2010
Google, the search engine giant, plans to test ultra-high speed broadband networks in one or more locations across the country. Google executives promise that the new Google Fiber will deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what is currently available.
Cities have until March 26 to submit their applications to Google.
Tuesday’s rally is being organized to increase awareness of Google Fiber and encourage people to help promote San Luis Obispo for consideration.
Scheduled speakers include Tim Williams of Digital West, Dave Garth of the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce, and Amy Kardel of Clever Ducks. Wine and cheese will be served.
