We present an overview of the MultiG program, an open research program addressing issues from end-user requirements on distributed multimedia applications to medium access protocols for multi-gigabit networks based on optical fibers and wireless extensions to portable workstations, Walkstations. The program is growing into a a national Swedish effort conducted in broad cooperation between academia and industry with substantial support from public sources. The spirit of the program is similar to that of the US program for the establishment of a National Information Infrastructure. SGN, the Stockholm Gigabit Network, a gigabit testbed based on darkfibers, is being built connecting 8 nodes in the Greater Stockholm area. The testbed may be extended nationally during the next few years.<>
