Google Fiber For Nashville!

Affordable, very high speed Internet may be coming to Nashville

Top 3 reasons you should care about Google Fiber for Nashville


Better, Cheaper Service For All - In Austin, one of the live Google Fiber cities, Time Warner is now being forced to compete with another major ISP (Google Fiber). In response they are adding free Wi-Fi for the entire city, increased Internet speed and are under pressure to lower prices.  This benefits everyone regardless of whether they use Google Fiber or not simply due to increased competition.


Super Fast Internet - Google's service opens up new possibilities for the web. For example, no waiting for movies and shows to cache means streaming services are more viable. Video conferencing and Internet based communication becomes more usable. Imagine being able to upload and download with the bottleneck being the processor in your device and not the speed of your connection.


More Businesses and Jobs - The link between affordable, ultra high speed Internet and economic development is discussed in this recent study. Giving businesses, entrepreneurs and families the capability of Google Fiber allows for more innovation and creativity online which ultimately leads to more jobs and new businesses.

⁠The American Telephone and Telegraph company has officially announced they are bringing high speed Internet to Nashville. This is exactly the type of behavior Google means to drive by introducing competition into the ISP industry.⁠

Online petition

I threw this on here in the hopes that we could say X number of Nashvillians signed an online petition requesting Google Fiber. It may be a little aggressive but I'm going with it.
