Abercrombie launches Hawaii Broadband Initiative

"Gov. Neil Abercrombie on Tuesday launched the Hawaii Broadband Initiative, which aims to provide statewide access to affordable ultra-high-speed Internet by 2018.

"The target connection speed is 1 gigabit per second, which is 200 times faster than today’s typical household connection speeds.

"Work is already under way for Hawaii to be the first state in the nation with 1 gigabit per second broadband connectivity at all public schools, libraries and universities by using $33.6 million in federal stimulus funding."
