“This project is suited to Sugar Land. Our population is highly educated. We have high standards,” said Sharlett Chowning, director of information technology in her presentation to City Council on Tuesday.
The proposed Internet speeds would be “like downloading a full-length 3D high-definition video in five minutes,” Chowning said.
Interested communities must submit an application by March 26, and the city’s department of information technology is working on Sugar Land’s submission.
Here’s the official city of Sugar Land web page on their effort, complete with logo, slogan, action items for individuals who want to get involved, and social media links. Are we gonna get in the game, Houston, or are we just going to sit back and let these other cities take the initiative?
