Google fiber project gets a Web site, but no winners yet

Google took a step forward on its much-touted effort to build a 1-gigabyte-per-second fiber network, announcing Tuesday a new Web site for the project.

The company said it received 1,100 applications from communities to host the experimental networks in their towns and cities. But Google did not say how far they were in announcing winners. Last February, the company said it would announce its selections by the end of the year. On the Web site, visitors can also "advocate" for federal policy proposals aimed at expanding broadband access.
