Baltimore releases Google Fiber application
Can you get your city or town to release its Google Fiber application? If so, post a link to it below.
In what may be the first instance across the country, Baltimore City released a copy of the application for the Google Fiber for Communities pilot project -- a 19-page document that attempts to persuade Google to invest up to a billion dollars for a new ultra-high-speed fiber-optic broadband network in the city.
Baltimore was one of more than 1,100 communities that submitted an application to Google by the deadline, March 26th. Many communities are hoping to lure Google's pilot project because they see it as a technological and economic shot in the arm for their local economies.
The Baltimore application was completed by a team of volunteers and city officials, who recently released a copy to The Baltimore Sun. (The official Website for Baltimore's effort is here.)
Here's the Baltimore application:
