Press release from Google’s corporate blog:

Official Google Blog: Think big with a gig: Our experimental fiber network: “We’re planning to build and test ultra high-speed broadband networks in a small number of trial locations across the United States. We’ll deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today with 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections. We plan to offer service at a competitive price to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people.”

I’d wager that the City of Chicago will not be part of the initial test, but maybe we’ll make the second round? Google is not the perfect corporate entity of course, but have you ever dealt with the AT&T Death Star? I’d much rather have our pipes supplied by Google.
