Crazy about JuneauBroadband? Not sure what all the fuss is about? Come to the JuneauBroadband Party!
Google has announced that it is going to build and test an ultrafast broadband network, and they've put out a nationwide request for proposals. At over 1 gigabit throughput per second, this network will offer fiber-to-the-user connections with open access and a choice of service providers at competitive prices.
What's in this for you? You tell us!
The Juneau Economic Development Council is submitting an application to Google on behalf of the City and Borough of Juneau to build and test this network in Juneau. How would ultrafast connectivity change your life, improve your business, or enhance Juneau's ability to connect with the rest of state, the country, and the planet? Nominate JuneauBroadband right now and share your answers!
Hundreds of other cities around the nation are rallying to submit applications on March 26, so competition is stiff and it will take every nomination, every creative idea, and every demonstration of support for us to rise above the crowd and bend Google's attention in our direction. Let's show Google that there's no better place to build an ultrafast broadband network than a rugged capital city on the Last Frontier!
