Short takes ...


From the October 25, 2013 issue of Public Power Daily

Originally published October 25, 2013

Google Access chief Kevin Lo offered some advice at the Broadband World Forum for communities that want to entice Google Fiber to build its gigabit broadband network in their cities, CNET reported. Lo provided three recommendations: grant new Internet providers access to power poles, ducts, and cable conduits; provide good maps of all infrastructure; and expedite construction permits. While Lo didn’t mention having a public power utility, the three cities chosen so far by Google are all public power: Austin, Texas, Kansas City, Kan., and Provo, Utah.
