Google FIber Considers Madison as Test Spot

While other cities are creating a frenzy around the possibility of being a test spot for the new Google Fiber, Madison held a public meeting. Google Fiber, the company's attempt at high speed internet, would provide a wireless network that runs "100 times faster" than most internet connections. Google, which already has an office in Madison, is considering several U.S. cities to test out the service.

Duluth, MN has jokingly promised to name every first born in the city either Google or Googlette Fiber. Topeka has changed it's name to Google, Kan. for a month. Madison held the public meeting on Thursday, March 11 at Olbrich Gardens to brainstorm ideas for the application. Bids are due by March 26, 2010 and Google plans on making a decision sometime this year.
