Celebration FL Google Fiber Update

The deadline has passed, and Celebration FL submitted it’s RFI for the Google Fiber for Communities. Google is now reviewing all the submissions and will eventually announce which town(s) will win installation contracts.

Celebration residents banded together to create this video postcard message to Google:

But the town didn’t stop there, if they win the contract Celebration plans to permanently rename one of their streets “Google Lane”:

Most of credit for the effort goes to Teddy Benson, who did a fantastic job moving quickly, creating the video, and submitting the RFI. I think it’s important to note that this was really all pulled together and produced in 2-3 weeks time, while other towns in the country began their promotional efforts in Feb.
