March 26, 2010 - The City of Knoxville has submitted its response to Google’s request for information from communities interested in being a trial location for Google’s proposed ultra high-speed broadband network.

The city transmitted its information to Google on Thursday afternoon. The deadline for responding to Google’s request – which has drawn widespread interest from mid-sized and large cities across the country – is today.

Google’s Fiber for Communities project proposes developing and testing the new network at one or more locations. The company’s overview of the project promises that the new network will be more than 100 times faster than internet services most Americans have access to today.

The request for information seeks data on everything from economic and educational data to weather statistics and the number of individual poles owned or controlled by utilities and cable entities (more than 150,000 in Knoxville) to application fees for using public rights of way and linear feet of utility conduit in the city.

More information about Google Fiber for Communities is available at www.cityofknoxville.org/google.
