WASHINGTON, March 26, 2010 – On Friday, Google announced the latest responses to their request for information on town seeking ultra high speed broadband connectivity to. A number of small towns assembled projects, and otherwise sought to publicize their efforts to become among the few selected Google sites. More than 600 community groups have responded, and with more than 190,000 responses from specific individuals.
The goal of the Google project, says the company, is to bring high-speed connectivity to between 100,000 and 500,000 people. In a blog post, Google also highlighted some of the stunts in an effort to attract Google’s attention: jumping into a frozen lake, renaming a town, and a number of rallies that have been held.
