Friday deadline for Google high-speed trial nominations

Time is running out for residents to nominate Fayette County for the project.

Doing so can be done via an online form available at https://www.google.com/appserve/fiberrfi/public/options and clicking on the button for “nominate your community.”

To nominate Fayette County, each user must log in with a Google account, which is free. The deadline for nominations is Friday.

Google’s Internet service would be provided by fiber connections wired directly to the home, the company has said. The company will be testing new ways to build such networks and has promised to “share key lessons learned with the world.”

The company is accepting proposals from communities across the country and Fayette’s bid group is unified with representatives from local governments working together to convince Google that Fayette is the right place for such a test.

Google has said the network would be “open access” so there would be a choice of multiple service providers.
