Letter: Google Fiber offers what we all need in 21st century
First Published Mar 12 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Mar 12 2014 01:01 am

As I watch our world shrink, I clearly see the need for ultra-high-speed Internet access and content delivery into our homes and businesses. I scratch my head that there is discussion on this subject at all. Perhaps the discussion should be about implementation and rollout.

Of course it will cost, everything of value does. The good people at Google Fiber have vast resources to the tune of billions of dollars, so the financial aspect of this is a no-brainer ("Google Fiber could be on its way to SLC," Tribune, Feb. 19). Yes they will charge for getting content to our media and information devices. They should charge — a fair price.

I want to be able to (in real time) play my bass guitar in Holladay, while my bandmate in West Valley City plays his lead guitar, our drummer plays in Draper and a sound technician records us all from his studio in Park City, all the while my wife streams her favorite show into our viewing room.

A bold and ambitious request, for certain, but with ultra-high-speed Google Fiber, perhaps that request isn’t so outlandish. C’mon Salt Lake City, West Vally City, Park City and Draper, let’s get on board.
