Longview could be part of Google experiment

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas town could soon enjoy internet speeds 100 times faster, but they need your help.

Google Fiber for Communities is an experiment to test ultra-high speed internet, and Longview wants to be a test site. The city is asking you to show your support for the bid by applying here.

Lynette Goodson with Full House Marketing told KLTV 7 "Once we have Google Fiber in Longview, it opens the door for all sorts of economic development. So, companies that are wanting to place service departments open new offices, new branches. This makes Longview viable for them we already have everything else."

Google will use the information to select trial sites. The deadline for submitting your support to Google is Friday night.
