Woo-gle for Google

Google wants to install an ultra high-speed broadband network in cities across AmericaAND we want them to come to Worcester! Google’s new network is expected to deliver Internet speed more than 100 times faster than what most Americans can access today and offer service at a competitive price. The goal is to make Internet access better and faster for everyone. The City of Worcester responded to Google's Request for Information.

 

Although we've already submitted our application (below), it is not too late to join us in our efforts to "woo" Google - or Woo-gle for Google!

 

What would Google Fiber mean for Worcester?
