Big Island Fiber Initiative wants your support for high speed internet


Aloha all,

On February 10th, 2010, Google announced “Google Fiber”, an experimental project in which it will install fiber high speed interconnects to a selected area in the United States. The fiber internet connection will provide up to 1 Gigabit per second internet connection to homes in the selected communities. Thats over 100 time faster than the fastest internet currently available to the residents of Hawaii.

The Google trial will provide this connection to at least 50,000 users with a maximum of 500,000 users. That equates to everyone on the Big Island!

Google has asked that local governments and residents express their interest in receiving the Google Fiber project in their area. We have established a website that will help provide information necessary for residents of the Big Island as well as city, state, and county officials in contacting Google and voicing our desire for ultra-fast high speed internet on the Big Island.

Please help by forwarding this email to everyone you know, and ask them to vote for the Big Island. Instructions on how to contact Google are listed on the website.

Thank you,

Big Island Internet Initiative

    The day this was announced by Google, I contacted Burt Tsuchiya the director of the Hawaii County Data Systems Department. Burt said he “knew about it”, but had no intention of applying….so I entered the Big Island myself.

    Lazy…lazy….lazy. Clowns like him will do their best to make it NOT happen.
