Nevada City’s rally for speedy Internet will end with party

A rally to lure Google’s super-fast Internet technology to Nevada City is shaping up.

The plan calls for an informative rally at 1:00 p.m. March 14 at Robinson Plaza, leading into a march up Broad Street and ending with a party at the Miners Foundry. Streets will be closed for up to 30 minutes, according to organizers John Paul and Chip Carman.

Video of the rally will be submitted along with other application materials in an effort to show community support for the project.

Google Fiber for Communities is an initiative meant to test 1-gigabit-per-second Internet connections, which would be 100 times faster than DSL. Google is searching for one or more host communities for the technology.
