WASHINGTON July 15, 2010- In an update to their fiber project Google has created a new website: http://www.fiberforcommunities.com/, which includes more detailed information on the status of the project. According to Google, the company has received “1,100 community responses and more than 194,000 responses from individuals.”

In addition to providing a physical connection the company also plans to offer service; but it will also allow third parties to offer their own service on the Google network. The service also will not be free, they intend to offer it at a “competitive price.”

“We have not yet determined the size of the trial, which will be based in large part on the availability of appropriate locations. We expect that we will provide this service to a minimum of 50,000 people and up to as many as 500,000 people, most likely in multiple communities.”
