    By: David C. St. John on Dec 13, 2012

    Seattle today announced a new partnership with a company that plans to use parts of the city-owned fiber-optic network to provide "ultra-fast" broadband services starting in 2013.  Details aren't finalized but the city has signed a memorandum of understanding with Gigabit Squared, a Washington, D.C., venture backed by manufacturers of networking gear and other investors.  Gigabit has proposed a test project that will offer fiber-optic broadband service to a relatively small number of homes in 12 neighborhoods. Gigabit also plans to use the city's network as the foundation for wireless service - like souped-up WiFi - that it would use to provide additional service in some neighborhoods.  Read more in the Seattle Times...
