- Google Fiber and Local Government Officials
- United States of America
For too long we have been held back by the monolpoly of Comcast and their sub-par performance and customer service. Unscheduled outages, low speed peak traffic hours, and overpriced internet are a thing of the past. Google Fiber is launching, and they are coming out fast.
We deserve internet speeds that can support our ever growing technological lives. Many people pay $70 to $80 for internet speeds that are promised to reach "up to 50 Mbps", but those speeds are far and few between and intermittent at best. Google Fiber is $100/month and can take care of all of your home networking needs. Your television streaming eliminates the need for cable or satellite services.
Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) telephone services eliminate the need for ATT, Comcast, and other telephone providers. With Google Fiber, all of those needs are not only satisfied, but the expectations are well exceded. With speeds of 1 Gbps (that's 1000 Mbps; more than 20x's faster than the fastest internet you can purchase today) for only $100, you can eliminate the need for those other bills.
It becomes infinitly easier to stream your television shows, surf the web, download music, upload pictures, and more. That 1 Gbps speed is not only the download speed, but it is the upload speed as well. Compare that to the 15 Mbps that you may be getting now, and it becomes clear that this is a technology that we need in the this rapidly expanding economy. Sign the petition, and lets get the internet speeds and freedom that we deserve.
We, the great residents of Augusta, Georgia and the surrounding area, call on Google and our local governments to come to an agreement in order to bring Google Fiber to our homes.
The Bring Google Fiber to Augusta petition to Google Fiber and Local Government Officials was written by Carmello Waters and is in the category Internet at GoPetition.
