Google is interested in deploying fiber-to-the-home broadband with 1
gigabit per second speeds to selected communities in order to
experiment with next-generation broadband applications and deployment
They have put out a request for information (RFI)  to identify
interested communities. Since Provo already has the fiber build-out
(more or less) complete, I wonder if Provo would be a compelling
candidate for Google to consider. Perhaps they could partner with
Veracity (the current stewards of iProvo).
Google is requesting information from both local governments, as well
as community groups.  I think PLUG, as a community group, should
respond to the RFI.
