EDIT: This was an April fools day announcement from a non-Google source. I’m preserving the rest of this post as it was this morning, even though the “Google fiber Mountain” blog has disappeared. We remain proud supporters of both Google fiber and April fools day pranks. [tweetmeme source="googleavl" only_single=false]We’ve got fiber!
We were proud to learn that Asheville was among the cities selected for Google’s fiber mountain project. You can see the map and read the full announcement here.
It was an extremely difficult decision. Our decision was strictly based on proximity, community involvement, and RFI response. Today we are announcing the first round of recipients. Our mission is to bring affordable, efficient, and cost-effective Ultra-High Speed bandwidth…
We are excited to be joining Greenville, SC – Asheville, NC – Johnson City, TN.
The details are still trickling out but three cities – Asheville, NC, Johnson City, TN, and Greenville, SC – will all be linked with a high speed fiber optic network, creating “Google mountain.” This is very good news.
