Bringing fiber to Stanford

I continue to work on our Fiber for Communities project. It's actually taken me all over the country this summer and fall, meeting and talking to different communities about how fiber to the home would benefit their residents.

Yesterday we announced a beta fiber build, which will occur at the faculty residential subdivision on the campus of Stanford University. I got to work closely with Stanford on the agreement that led to this announcement and I'm very excited it is moving ahead.

As the blog post states, this fiber build is a test, and does not affect the selection of a city or cities as part of our Fiber for Communities process. But it's an important next step and we expect to learn a lot.
