An effort to promote Spokane as one of two Google test sites for upgraded, high-speed Web communications wants the public’s help. A group called Hey Google, Pick Spokane is staging a rally Wednesday at the Clocktower Meadow in Riverfront Park at 5:30 p.m.
The Hey Google group is trying to call attention to Spokane’s campaign to become a test site for Google’s Fiber for Communities project.
The testing would offer Web speeds up to 100 times faster than what most Americans now have.
“This is an opportunity for the city of Spokane to gain its place in the state of Washington as a hot spot for technology and information,” according to a press release from the group.
People are asked to gather at the Clocktower Meadow for a video and photo shoot.
The city of Spokane is participating in the promotion.
