Gigabit Seattle to build fiber-to-the-home/business in 12 initial areas

The City of Seattle has reached an agreement with broadband developer Gigabit Squared for the development and operation of an ultra high-speed fiber-to-the-home/business broadband network. The plan, dubbed Gigabit Seattle, will begin in twelve Seattle neighborhoods as a demonstration, and it will leverage Seattle's excess giver capacity to encourage business owners, health care and education entities, and public safety institutions to take advantage of and innovate on the fiber network.
