Quicken Loans Founder Launching Rocket Fiber In Downtown Detroit

The founder of Quicken Loans says he is bringing an advanced fiber optic network to downtown Detroit that is as "fast as Google or faster."

Gilbert, founder and chairman of Quicken Loans and Rock Ventures, said this weekend he has formed a new "community investment initiative" called Rocket Fiber LLC to provide faster Internet connections in downtown Detroit. The service will be up to 100 times faster than the current residential average, Gilbert said in a statement.
