Former Mayor Mike McGinn & President Young`s Announcement of Seattle-UW Gig.U Partnership The UW is one of 37 universities seeking responses to a Request for Information from service providers for a next-generation broadband network in the areas around UW`s campus. This national project is called Gig.U. The City intends to make its extensive network of dark fiber optic cable available to potential service providers in the project area. We have miles of fiber optics lying dormant underground. By leveraging them through this partnership, we will greatly increase Gig.U`s chance of success by making the opportunity significantly more compelling to service providers. We`ve already put our underutilized assets to work elsewhere, by making empty conduit available to providers in Pioneer Square.
