Nothing is FREE folks! Google did not get to where it is by offering anything for free!
To the writers and readers of this article
I implore you to do some research on what really happened in Caldwell County when Google moved in. There is a good reason there is a lawsuit.
My Father was living in Lenoir when Google came to Caldwell County. The county wooed Google with loads of money to put the data farm in Lenoir. Where did this Money come from???? Property taxes went up 25% to pay for it. So much for do no evil, Google!!!!!!
Google should be begging / paying us to come here! Please take a look at the bigger picture and not just the faster internet carrot Google is dangling. From Googles FAQ: "We're --- hoping to identify interested communities that will work with us to achieve this goal. Now, look at Googles past M.O. for an apt translation of this: Find a county, city, town to give them all the tax breaks and other services (basically foot the bills for them to get set up). Then once they have the service set up they can charge what they want. It gets better still for Google as they dont really have an investment in it. Clever Google!
Yes , internet speeds closer to what you can get in other areas of the world would be great and I dont expect it to be free, but as a Chapel Hill homeowner and tax payer, I dont want my taxes used to subsidize a filthy rich company like Google either.
Per your article
.The details of the deal remain vague
.hmmm wonder why? Lets get the details of this deal before we start all these pro-Google high speed internet parades.
Googles "Don't Be Evil" motto is a joke!
