The office of Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm says she's meeting in California with Google officials to encourage them to test their new ultrahigh speed fiber network in her state.
Google has asked communities to submit proposals by March 26 to host the Google fiber network. It says it plans to announce winners by the end of the year.
Google is based in Mountain View, Calif., Granholm's office issued a statement Wednesday afternoon saying she was meeting with company officials in California.
Google's experimental fiber-optic networks would deliver data at 1 gigabit per second to homes and businesses. That's about 50 to 300 times faster than the DSL, cable and fiber-optic networks that connect most U.S. homes to the Internet today.
