GOING TO GREAT LENGTHS FOR GOOGLE!

A press conference was held 8:30 A.M. TODAY in the "Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce lobby to discuss the plans of a group of volunteers spearheading efforts to win the Google Fiber for Communities project for Genesee County."

"Here are some reasons to bring Google here:

• Fastest internet speeds in the world ... 100 X faster.• Network would be open for use to all ISP providers, which lowers prices.

• Increases the choices of communities’ internet access.

• Bring jobs to Genesee County. SAS Software as Service.

• Increase capacity of rural and suburban users.

• Increase the ability of rural communities to telecommute or be a tele-student.

• Increase the ability of gamers.

• Allow businesses to source parts for manufacturing and increase their bandwidth.

• Increase the ability of residents to innovate and create businesses and applications over the new network.

• Make Genesee County one of the few places in the world with this type of capacity.

• Give the business community access to Google business docs and online software. This will eventually make downloading software to your computer obsolete. We will be able to use software over the Internet.

• Flint has available to it funds from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act that can be used in this capacity.

• This technology will push World Wide Web interactive media."

"This type of technology is revolutionary and will change the face of whatever community it's in. Let's make it Genesee County!"
