Bring Google Fiber to Fairfax!

We need your help.  Google is developing the next wave of ultra-high-speed broadband communications.   Google is asking local governments and residents to demonstrate why they should be the first to have the new network.  To win this opportunity, we need to show them what we already know: Fairfax County, Washington DC’s front yard, is the greatest place in the nation to test emerging technology.

If brought to Fairfax County, Google’s experimental Fiber network will increase tele-work and reduce our traffic. Local businesses, and State, Local and Federal government will increase productivity as they become more green. Northern Virginia has many tech-industry job centers like Tyson’s Corner and the Dulles Corridor.  With the addition of this high-speed, competitively priced fiber network, these areas will accelerate attracting and providing cutting edge jobs, and help our area grow and stay strong.

The Fairfax County School system is consistently ranked as one of the nation’s best. The 25 publicly funded high schools includes the nationally stellar Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology. The Fairfax School system is often selected for IT-related educational pilot programs. High-speed fiber would bring a previously unattainable amount of technology, data, and information to the classroom.

Help bring ultra-high-speed Internet service to Northern Virginia and break the vehicular and electronic gridlock in Washington DC Metro area.

This is a team effort, and we can only prove to Google how deserving we are by presenting an overwhelming and united front. Sign this petition, and contact your associates, friends, family, and neighbors today about getting Google to build America’s next-generation network in Fairfax County.
