The City of Williamsburg, James City County and York County are jointly applying to be a test community for Google’s new ultra
high-speed broadband internet service, according to a press release from Williamsburg spokeswoman Kate Hoving.
Google plans to test ultra-high speed broadband networks (over 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home
connection, for those in the know) in one or more trial locations across the country and is taking suggestions on where until March 26, according to its web site.
Williamsburg, however, maybe have to up the ante. The mayor of Topeka, Kansas signed a proclamation in early March that officially changed the city’s name to ‘Google’ for the month, according to CNN.com. Could Williamsburg become ‘Googlesburg?’
