City of Gainesville Fiber Data Response Form
City of Gainesville Fiber Optics Speed Test
The City of Gainesville is undertaking a fiber feasibility study to determine if there is a way to build and operate a fiber optic network to bring gigabit broadband to residents of the area. The potential services would provide residents and businesses with super-fast internet access.
