Google is planning to try out a new, ultra high speed, fiber-optic broadband internet service in a small number of communities around the US, and is looking for towns and cities to sign up. DC Council Member Mary Cheh (Ward 3) wants faster Internet access for DC residents. It’s a match made in heaven!

It’s probably best to provide feedback directly to Google if you have an opinion about what they should do with their fiber, but if you lack the technical knowledge to answer their questionnaire, you can also sign Council Member Cheh’s online petition (which is hosted on Google Docs! Flattery will get you everywhere!)

Tiffany lives in Brookland with her husband Tom, son Charlie, and two high-maintenance cats. Read why Tiffany loves DC.
