As you may have heard, Google is looking for a City like ours to test their experimental ultra high speed internet network. They’re offering The City of Orlando the chance to be home to the fastest internet connection in the world. That means our residents and businesses would have access to an internet connection 100 times faster than anyone else.
As you can imagine, the possibilities for this infusion of technology are endless. From accessing media in our homes… to giving our hospitality, high tech and medical/research professionals a tool to turn dreams into reality unlike any other on earth… Google wants us to use this network to make our lives better.
Before that can happen, we need your help to let Google know that Orlando is the place to be. We need you to tell Google why we’re the right community to take full advantage of this incredible opportunity. Here’s how you can help:

This world class Memorial is to be located adjacent to the new VA Medical Center (VAMC) across from the south entrance of the center at a beautiful location facing a lake. On nearby VA property will be a chapel, long-term care residence and parking. Design is being coordinated to be consistent with the design of the new VAMC. The memorial will be a focal point of the VAMC and will be an important addition to the Medical City and Central Florida. It will honor approximately 1,100 veterans from Orange, Lake, Brevard, Osceola, Seminole, and Volusia counties who made the ultimate sacrifice and never returned. As this is a major project involving approximately $3 million dollars in construction costs, your most generous contribution would be appreciated to honor those who have given far more.
