Jersey City, NJ, March 02, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Councilman Fulop Calls On All Jersey City Residents To Apply
Councilman Steven Fulop (Ward E) is both proud and excited to announce a call to action for residents of Jersey City to help bring ultra-high-speed broadband networks to the City as part of a test program announced by Google. Google believes the networks can deliver internet speeds of 1 gigabit per second – about 100 times faster than the connection most Americans have today. More information about the program can be found on Google’s Blog.
“This is an incredible opportunity for Jersey City and we cannot let it pass us by,” said Councilman Steven Fulop. “Jersey City fits the criteria perfectly. More important than anything is the immense benefit a test like this could have on the middle and working class communities in our City.”
Jersey City has a population of more than 240,000 and it is also the most diverse city in the state with populations from many ethnic groups including African-American, Indian, Asian, Puerto Rican, Filipino, and more. Jersey City, which is often called The Sixth Borough, and Wall Street West because of its proximity to Manhattan, is also home to both blue collar and white collar workers and everyone in between. There is a growing artist population as well. Each of these groups would benefit significantly from the access that Google’s ultra high-speed network would bring.
“I am committed to working with the administration and the Council of Jersey City to coordinate the best possible application,” continued Councilman Fulop. “This is the type of program we can focus on to help build positive progress, and a better name for Jersey City. I hope every resident will fill out the online form to help bring this opportunity home.”
