Google has provided an update today regarding their Google Fiber for Communities project. Posted to the Official Google Blog, the update doesn’t say much and it certainly doesn’t say what we all want to hear: which communities have been selected for the fiber trial towns. What it does tell us is that 1,100 communities responded and almost 200,000 individuals lobbied for their community. You can browse to see which communities have applied from this listing.
Two other things were included in this article. The first being the announcement of the Google Fiber for Communities site.
Throughout this process, one message has come through loud and clear: people are hungry for better and faster Internet access. With that in mind, today we’re launching a new site called Google Fiber for Communities, where you can learn more about fiber networks and keep up-to-date on our project. You’ll also be able to advocate for common-sense federal and local policies that would help fiber deployments nationwide.
The final thing was a simple thank you video which makes a compilation of some of the videos you may have already seen.
They still plan on naming the community (or communities) by the end of the year but today is not that day.
