Frederick has submitted an application for Google’s Fiber for Communities program:
The City of Frederick has applied to Google to be considered for an ultra-high speed broadband network trial. Google is planning to launch an experiment to make Internet access better and faster for everyone. They plan to test ultra-high speed broadband networks in one or more trial locations across the country. Their networks will deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today, over 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home and workplace connections. They will offer service at a competitive price to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people.
