Dear Mayor James and members of Gloucester City Council,
I am wondering if and when Verizon Fios will be available for the entire city of Gloucester. I see
many locations throughout the city with Fios, but I have spoken with Verizon and they said they do not have any locations they are adding service unless the town they have placed or are placing the service forces them to do so.
In order for a town to attract professional individuals these days, people need to know that the infrastructure of the future in technology will be able to support them. I hope Gloucester City realizes this and would make a concerted effort to have the whole city wired.
The City administration might also want to look into the latest internet trend, Google Fiber. Google Fiber starts with a connection speed 100 times faster than today's
Instant downloads. Crystal clear high definition TV. And endless possibilities. Presently it is only offered in some states. However, it wouldn't hurt for the city to inquire about it.
As for where the Chatham Square apartments are being converted to townhouses next to Meadowbrook Run, since not a single one has been sold yet, maybe the city could turn it into a technology park to recruit technology based workers. That would be one step the city could take to show we are truly looking towards the future and adding good paying jobs in this city.
