Here is an interesting example of community relations from a university. One can't help but wonder, however, if it is a gift that will be ignored because the receivers won't know what to do with it. Even heavy users of the internet might not have a use for one gigabit per second internet speed. The kinds of applications the university wants to test in the community would seem to be lightweight for such a fast fiber connection. Still, it shows concern on the part of the university to raise the standard of living of the neighborhoods about it. That is worth something.
