Google Hires Milo Medin to Head Fiber Initiative

Google has appointed Milo Medin as Vice President, Access Services.

Google also said that it has delayed the selection of its first fiber community. Nearly 1,100 communities across the country have sought to participate in the Google fiber project, and the company said it needs more time to make its selection. A decision is expected early next year.http://googleblog.blogspot.com/

  • In February 2010, Google announced plans to rollout an "experimental" fiber-to-the-home network in test markets across the United States. Specifically, Google plans to offer a 1 Gbps home service at a competitive price to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people.

  • Milo Medin previously served as co-founder of Chief Technology Officer of Excite@Home, a pioneer in residential broadband service, and later at M2Z Networks.
