A healthy diet includes plenty of fiber. Just ask Google.

Memphis mayor A C Wharton will file Memphis' application for Google Fiber, a new super high-speed broadband network, today.

"Google Fiber would not only bridge a stark divide that affects so many of our low-income and under-served households, it would also transform us into a global destination for knowledge workers, web developers, and other drivers of the 21st-century economy," the mayor said in a statement. "Memphis has always been driven by a civic spirit of innovation and thirst for new ideas, values we share with Google."


The city is one of about 200 nationwide vying to be one of the search giant's test cities.
