Google recently announced that they will be rolling out high-speed and affordable Internet access in selected communities. Durham is anxious to be one of those communities. The center of the effort is HiFiber Durham.
Google is planning to build, and test ultra-high speed broadband networks in a small number of trial locations across the country. We'll deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today with 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections. We'll offer service at a competitive price to at least 50,000, and potentially up to 500,000 people.
