Chesterfield County Applies for Google Fiber

March 29, 2010
Public Affairs

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Chesterfield County has entered its bid to be one of the lucky communities chosen for Google Fiber, a proposed network that, according to the Internet giant, will offer speeds more than 100 times faster than most broadband connections.

Google is searching for a handful of American communities to install and test its new network. The company will pay to install the necessary infrastructure and offer the broadband service at competitive prices.

Hundreds of cities and counties across the U.S. have applied. The deadline for applications was March 26.

If selected, Chesterfield County will have a competitive advantage for economic development, quality of life and publicity. Residents will have access to the newest applications that will take advantage of the speeds. Businesses also will benefit from the exposure and sales opportunities associated with doing business with a Google Fiber community.

For more information, call Chesterfield County’s Chief Information Officer Barry Condrey at 804-748-1590 or e-mail condreyba@chesterfield.gov.
