Dear friends and neighbors in the communities of Shirley, Harvard, Ayer and Devens:
Google plans to provide very high speed Internet connectivity, on the order of 100 times faster than anything commonly available today. A group of your fellow residents is preparing to respond to the Google Fiber for Communities Request for Information. Google will select a few communities and build the network as quickly as possible.
As part of the process of nominating our towns, we want to get input from as many people as possible. If you haven’t heard of the project, or you want more information before you respond, click http://groups.google.com/ group/next-gen-community to go to the Google group we have set up. There you will find links to the RFI, as well as an FAQ that Google provided.
The survey is available online at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/next-gen-comm
Your input is highly valued, and we would welcome your joining the group if you would like to help. Please pass this on to any of your friends and neighbors that may not have heard about it.
