The online job postings start with a disclaimer: “At this time, there is no guarantee that San Diego will be named a Google Fiber city. We’re exploring interest and talent for the opportunity in advance.”
Google is soliciting applicants for community impact manager, city manager and associate city manager for its Google Fiber-branded internet service in San Diego, but only if candidates don’t mind some uncertainty.
“Due to the dynamic nature of local government, utilities, and organizations, we’re looking for flexible, senior leaders,” the postings warn.
No one – not Google, whose engineers must study factors like topography and housing density, nor city of San Diego officials tasked with completing a detailed checklist about existing infrastructure, land availability and city permits – is yet willing to commit that Google will be able to bring its super-fast internet speeds to San Diego.
Why is Google Fiber a big deal?
Google says it can give customers internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second, or 1,000 megabits per second, compared with the national average of 11.7 megabits per second.
In case those numbers don’t mean much to you, that’s the difference between using one device at a time and using four at the same time with no slowdown, or between downloading a movie in seconds instead of minutes.

It'll be interesting to see how Google chooses to compete with the existing players since they have the freedom (and burden) to run their own hard lines. The biggest problem most of have is TW and Cox's mini-monopolies. Without proper competition, neither price nor service could improve. I hope Google takes the free market approach and really try to make a difference for the consumer instead of compromising with the existing players to carve out yet another mini-monopoly.
Web Pass, which is currently operating in downtown San Diego offers speeds between 100 and 200 mg per second for $55 per month, or an annual lump sum fee of $500. That is significantly cheaper than any of the existing services mentioned in the article. It is significantly faster than Cox or AT&T, both of which we have dumped.
"Cox isn’t responding to pressure from the likes of Google, blah...blah...blah..." Schlundt said.
Rigggghhht. And her blatant mis-truth is all you need to know about the veracity of her follow-on statement -- "Gigablast should be available to residents countywide within the next couple years," she said, "though there’s no firm timeline."
Meanwhile, she and her slime-bag industry cohorts funnel money to the likes of evolution denying Rep. Blackburn, TN to block net neutrality rules, outlaw municipal broadband, and re-write laws regarding 'un-served area's.' Who also, BTW, brings along her positive social agenda to brighten our lives.
