Fiber is Fast!

Fiber is Fast!

On Wednesday, April 16th, the Seattle City Council’s Energy and Technology Committee released $185,000 to allow the City to develop an RFP for a fiber-to-the-premise network.   This could be quite an historic day for Seattle.  I think the high speeds possible with a fiber optic network to every home and business will allow applications which transform the lives of the people of Seattle, as well as our economy.   Such applications include two-way high-definition television.   I’ll write more about these applications at another time.   More info will be posted on the City’s website shortly.
