Premium Lock How can North Carolina become a true Gigabit State?

Analysis: Google Fiber's stated interest in the Triangle and Charlotte is good news for the state. But is this the "holy grail" for North Carolina? Is access to gigabit service from Google and/or other providers in our urban areas enough? No. I would argue strongly that we are not the Gigabit state until affordable options for scalable broadband service expand into rural North Carolina. This isn't a "nice to have" anymore but a necessity.

Premium Lock Google Fiber could help make NC the first 'gigastate'

If Google Fiber were to pick the Research Triangle and Charlotte, the high-speed connectivity across the state would take quantum leaps. Don't forget the NC Next Generation Network is under development, MCNC's NCREN has a state-wide fiber backbone, and Time Warner Cable has Duke Net's highway. More projects might be coming - say from some giant like AT&T. Mix all these networks and you have the first "gigastate."

The economic development group NC IDEA is funneling $250,000 to the Council for Entrepreneurial Development to help the CED implement a strategic shift. But what does that mean? The CED isn't talking. Meanwhile, its lead person on last year's big data project - called TriangulateNC - has left. Plus, not everyone in the Triangle startup community endorses the NC IDEA grant. WRALTechWire takes an in-depth look at what's happening with the CED in an exclusive story for our Insiders.
