    Google can run GPON in Centerville? I think that’s off the mark anyway; Google may have an outside interest in WDMPON but failing that it seems PTP is their preference.

    I find pitches by individual member cities at the expense of a well defined and coordinated effort by UTOPIA to be counterproductive. And I don’t think it bolsters a pitch to highlight existing last mile infrastructure (middle mile is a different story) as Google implied part of their effort is to establish a road map for public/private partnerships to deploy FTTH. But those are the cards to be played I suppose.

    How much of the middle mile and backbone is built vs. how much of the last mile access is built? That’s what Google needs to know.

    Best of luck.

    I hope centerville gets it. I work in centerville and where we are ALL we can get is a bunch of bonded T1 lines (we get 10Mb up/down right now) which is waaaaaaaaaaay more expensive that it should be.

    Can’t even get comcast as there aren’t any cable lines.
