Memphis Needs More Fiber!
Google is looking for a few communities around the U.S. to be the inaugural cities for its newest product, Google Fiber.
Google wants to bring super-fast fiberoptic internet connections to homes and businesses in a few select cities. The service would be about 300 times faster than the internet you currently have.
Local governments are able to nominate their cities, and residents are encourage to log in to Google and vote on behalf of their city. Memphis Mayor A.C. Wharton has already nominated Memphis, but in order to seal the deal, he needs all of our help.
To nominate Memphis, log into Google and fill out the short survey. It only takes a few minutes. You’re encouraged to be creative though – submit a link to a photo or video about why Google should bring Fiber to Memphis. Like this one:
If you can’t make a video at home, you can go to the main library on Tuesday, March 16 to tape a video about why Memphis needs Fiber.
You’ve only got until March 26th to nominate Memphis, so do it soon. Once you do, pass it on to everyone you know.
