FCC chair: one gigabit Internet community per state by 2015
Today at the US Conference of Mayors' Winter Meeting, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski called for construction of at least one "gigabit community" similar to Google's Kansas City fiber project, in all 50 states by 2015. Genachowski believes that "establishing gigabit communities nationwide will accelerate the creation of a critical mass of markets and innovation hubs" enabled by the ultra-fast Internet connectivity.
