Think BIG Topeka

View LARGE also part of my Squirrel Series


Imagine Topeka as a technology hot spot. A place where citizens, schools and businesses have unparalleled access to an internet connection so powerful they're able to make daily life more efficient, just by residing here. Where, instead of waiting minutes or hours for a file to download or a video to load, it would occur in seconds, allowing technology to take us places we've never even imagined before. With Google's Fiber Experiment, this is all completely possible.


Currently, Google is looking for communities to test ultra-high speed broadband networks across the country. The network would deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today, over 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home/business connections.


As you can imagine, it would present fantastic opportunities to a community like Topeka!
