Google Connecting Public Housing With Free Gigabit Internet

This free gigabit internet for low income families is great and all but when is Google Fiber coming to my area!?!? Oh come on, don't look at me like that. You know you are thinking the same thing. wink

That’s why last year, we partnered with ConnectHome, an initiative by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the White House to accelerate Internet adoption by families with school-age children in public housing. Today, alongside HUD Secretary Julian Castro and local partners, we’re proud to take another step in that commitment by announcing that we’ll be bringing gigabit Internet service to residents in all public housing properties that we connect with Google Fiber. Families in these properties will be able to access some of the fastest speeds, at no cost to the housing authority or to residents.
