Metro Council Takes First Vote On Google Fiber Proposal

Metro Council Takes First Vote On Google Fiber Proposal

CREATED Apr 15, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Metro Council gave it's first approval to Google to build what are referred to as "Network Huts" on Metro property.

It is just one of the requirements the tech giant set out when it said Nashville could be one of the next cities to get its ultra-high speed Google Fiber internet connection.

Google would pay the city an annual fee based on square footage of each hut.

Google set out a check list for all of its potential cities.

It is expected to make a decision on which city gets Google Fiber in the coming months.

The bill still needs to go for its second and third reading before becoming law.
