Google Fiber is soon to be in nine more cities
Google announced today that it would be considering laying fiber cable for nine more cities in the United States: Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Phoenix, Portland, Raleigh-Durham, Salt Lake City, San Antonio and San Jose.
The following articles are important to read, for starters.
While you are looking at Internet articles, the following article which appeared in today's New York Times regarding net neutrality is also very important. Be sure to read the comments section!
Additionally, the following quote is very important. Think about Lawrence as you read this quotation.
"These cities are led by people who have been working hard to bring faster internet speeds and the latest technologies to their residents," the company stated in its blog post. "And they are diverse - not just geographically, but in the ways they'll give us opportunities to learn about the wide range of challenges and obstacles that communities might face in trying to build a new fiber network."
And where is Lawrence in this list? Of course - it's nowhere to be found.
