Re: Any year now....

Spending a year to build the fiber infrastructure in a city from scratch doesn't sound all that unreasonable, and doesn't really give any indication of Google's future plans...

To build it would be good. To begin building it, not so good. Sounds like they have very little planning done for the city if they are still evaluating pricing. Last I heard they didn't even have job postings listed yet.

Successfully getting around the city bureaucracy, build the first phase, AND connect new customers in a year? That would be a miracle!

How long has Montreal discussed a dedicated rail link between downtown and the airport? or plans to replace the Turcot interchange? Or build new metro cars? Or build a new super hospital? These are all plans that have been discussed for over A DECADE before they even got started!

If Google can get the first phase of a project like this completed within a year, and void being corrupted by both the politicians and organized crime (often the same individuals), then I say Google for Mayor!
