Google Fiber Vote at Portland City Council: Passed

Portland City Hall

The five commissioners of the City of Portland vote this morning on the proposal for Google Fiber.

Google has requested that Portland and surrounding suburbs ready the area for potential future gigabit residential service. Google will evaluate cities across the country and select a few for Internet and TV services. https://fiber.google.com/newcities/

Current thinking is that a decision would be made by Google late this year, early next; and construction would span 2015-17 if Portland is selected.

The discussion is Item #605. The testimony has already been completed, but a full chamber of Portlanders in person who want Google Fiber is important to the project.

The time is approximate because the Council has a myriad of items to vote upon. Although the meeting room is formal, you can come and go easily.

Commissioners love to hear your thoughts and ideas to make Portland better - you can contact them by the website portlandoregon.gov, year round.
