Submitting our Google Fiber application today

March 26, 2010

Today at noon, the City of Memphis will file it’s application for Google Fiber,the vast “superbroadband” fiber optic network that Google is offering to develop for some lucky city.  We believe that Memphis is the ideal candidate city – we’re already a global distribution center that connects the world’s commerce, we’re served by a single, publicly-owned utility, and the technology, bioscience, and higher education sectors are growing in big ways year after year.  We’ve put together an extremely competitive application and look forward to hearing Google’s response.

You can see some of the many, many great Memphians showing their support for Google Fiber by clicking here or here.

Thanks to everyone who helped with our application, especially Russell Ingram, Meka Egwuekwe and the team at Lokion, Leigh Tanner and her team at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and EVERYBODY who contributed a letter, a video, or a tweet to this effort!
