Promoters of an effort to make Spokane one of two Google test sites for upgraded, high-speed Web communications want the public’s help. A group called Hey Google, Pick Spokane is staging a rally today at 5:30 p.m. in Riverfront Park’s Clocktower Meadow.
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.
People are asked to gather at the Clocktower Meadow for a video and photo shoot.
The organization has a Web site, heygooglepickspokane.com, and a Facebook page where more information on the effort can be found.
sponsored According to two 2015 surveys, 62 percent of Americans do not have enough savings to handle an unexpected emergency, much less any long-term plans.
