[ARCHIVED] Residents’ help needed to bring Google Fiber to Castle Rock

Castle Rock already is one of the country’s best places to live. Partnering with one of the world’s most innovative companies to bring ultra-high-speed Internet to our Town could make it even better.

The Town is asking for residents’ help in attracting to Castle Rock the Google Fiber project – which would bring Internet service with speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans currently access.

Not only would the access be lightning-fast, it also would come at a “competitive price,” according to Google.

Castle Rock is among countless cities and towns competing to bring this technology to our community. That’s why we need residents’ help convincing the company the Town is the best choice.

It’s easy to help. Simply go to CRgov.com/googlefiber and complete a two-step process that consists of nominating the Town via Google’s Web site and then completing a survey that will give Castle Rock data to use in its application.

The application is due March 26, so it’s important that you nominate the Town by then and that you complete our survey by March 23 so we have time to incorporate your responses into our application.

Finally, we need you to spread the word to your family, friends and neighbors to visit CRgov.com/googlefiber and do the same. Castle Rock can attract Google, but we must do it together. Act now!

Questions? Contact Town Chief Technology Officer Kevin Capp, 303-660-1369 or kcapp@CRgov.com.
