The folks who organized Baltimore’s application for the Google Fiber for Communities project (where the city is vying with more than 1,000 other communities for a high-speed broadband project from the search giant) are moving the ball further by organizing a symposium next month on the topic of high speed broadband fiber in the city.
The thinking is that Baltimore should want to try to build out its fiber-optic broadband network for its citizens, even if Google doesn’t choose us. So how do we as a city get there? That’s what this symposium will be all about, I gather.
Here’s the link for full details — cost is $25 to attend.
Maybe I’ll see you there?
