Google Fiber Coming To Huntsville In Public-Private Partnership

In most of the cities where Google Fiber exists (or is in the process of being built out), the company is starting from nothing — digging trenches, running new fiberoptic cable — but Google announced today that when it launches Fiber service in Huntsville, Alabama, it will be doing so over Rocket City’s municipal fiber network. […] If successful, this model could be replicated by Google or others to help bring service to other parts of the country where a city or county owns a fiberoptic service but is barred by state law from selling directly to consumers. – Chris Morran, Consumerist
