Google Delays Fiber Project - But Not for Long

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA - The 1,100 communities that have waited since last spring to find out whether they will be hosts for Google's gigabit fiber networks will have to wait a bit longer. This week, Google hired a new vice president for access services, Milo Medin, to oversee the Fiber for Communities project - and his first action after joining the company was to announce a delay in selecting the communities to be wired with fiber.

Google originally planned to select one or more communities by the end of this year, but didn't count on receiving applications from more than 1,000 communities. "We want to make sure we get this right," Medin explained, adding that he expected the selection to be made early in 2011.
