Google is pnlanning to install and test a gigabit high speed network for a community in the United States. Cities across the country are competing for this opportunity. If Asheville is chosen for this project, it will bring good jobs, provide a wave of investment capital, and give us a 5 – 10 year head-start on upcoming technology.
