TWT Seeks Input for Google Fiber
Optic Trial Location
(from The Woodlands Township Web site)
THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (March 8, 2010) -
Google is planning to build and test ultra-high
speed broadband networks at one or more trial
locations that will utilize fiber-to-the-home
connections to the Internet at more than one
gigabit per second. They will offer service
at a competitive price to at least 50,000
and upwards of 500,000 people. For a community
to be considered as a test site, Google must
receive nominations from residents and community
groups, as well as a request for information
(RFI) from the community's local government.
The Woodlands Township has received considerable
communication from local agencies and residents
requesting that the Township submit a response.
To help with this response, the
Township has put a survey on its Web site
to get resident feedback about the Google
fiber optic trial. The survey link, titled
"GOOGLE SURVEY," can be found on
the left navigation panel of the main page.
The results of the survey will be included
with the RFI that will be submitted to Google.
The RFI will consist of questionnaires regarding
community background information, collaboration
on the Google Fiber Trial, community support,
facilities and resources, construction methods
and regulatory issues.
The Woodlands Township is asking residents
to take part in the survey, which will remain
on the Web site until Friday, March
. The Township believes that the
Google fiber optic trial would be a quality
of life benefit for residents, as well as
an economic development asset to the community.
