    Philadelphia becomes a test-bed for ultra high speed applications and urban on-shoring
    Facilitate economic and community development in a number of technology ecosystems throughout the City
  • 24. The Google fiber initiative – Part of our overall Gigabit city strategy
    Google wants to build and test ultra high-speed broadband networks in several locations
    Test beds offering 1 Gigabit connectivity to institutions, individuals, and businesses together in a Technology Ecosystem
    Goal is to drive innovation in both deployment and use of ultra high-speed broadband services
    Allow Google to select one or more zones from our overall Gigabit City model
    Zones would include critical mass of institutions including universities, technology firms, media firms, and science/medical companies
    Google fiber would integrate with existing wireless assets for seamless connectivity
    Create InfoTech incubators in these infrastructure-rich areas

  • 25. Why would Google select Philadelphia for its test bed location?
    Philadelphia is historically a city of firsts, including the first university in America, first bank, first library, first hospital, first skyscraper, and first computer
    Ideal location in a large population zone between New York and Washington, D.C. developing a reputation as a creative center
    Ideal test bed zones available in University City and Old City/Northern Liberties areas with universities, science companies, media industry, and technology firms
    Good opportunity to use existing capital assets such as SEPTA infrastructure to speed deployment and reduce cost of test bed
    Would continue existing development of Philadelphia region’s development of IT economy
