Help bring ultra high-speed internet to Somerville!

Google plans to build and test ultra high-speed broadband networks in a small number of trial locations across the United States. This program, called Google Fiber for Communities, will launch an extremely fast broadband network that will deliver speeds up to 1 gigabit per second (over 100 times faster than what most Americans currently have access to).

Somerville has worked to bring this high-speed internet to our city, but it is our job as a community to drive the point home! Here’s how:

We plan to drop a “Google Bomb” to emphasize our interest in this beneficial opportunity! Sign in to your Twitter (or a friend’s) and simply tweet the following message: “@Google #SomervilleGigSpeed

Somerville is vying with 1,100 other communities to receive this high speed internet, so it is important to get involved. To show Google we are the perfect city for this program, we are developing a website that will keep track of the Twitter tags, so tweet often!
