On the City of Thornton’s Facebook page, the city is asking all Thornton residents to take five minutes to nominate Thornton to be the recipient of a new high-speed network provided by Google. This would be an extraordinary opportunity for Thornton to not only gain incredibly fast Internet access for its citizens but also to expand it to those who cannot afford Internet access at all.

We need your help!! You may have heard that Google is looking for a community to build and test an ultra-highspeed network for connection to the internet. The City of Thornton is applying to have Google build their network here!! How can you help? By visiting the link attached, you can NOMINATE YOUR CITY. It is easy to do too. Please visit the link and nominate Thornton for this amazing opportunity.
Residents are asked to follow the link below and extol the virtues of the City of Thornton and why we would be a worthy recipient of this. If you have the talent, a YouTube video would be great as well but is not necessary.
Please take a few minutes and fill out the form. Just FYI, you do have to have a Google account to nominate Thornton but it takes just a minute extra to do.
