NCNGN Selects AT&T
On April 8th, 2014 – The Steering Committee of the North Carolina Next Generation Network (NCNGN) unanimously and enthusiastically approved a resolution recommending that its members seek authorization to enter master network development agreements with AT&T. Since then, AT&T has been actively installing fiber optic cable and other equipment in the NCNGN communities, and are now offering their GigaPower services in select areas.
Google is coming to the Triangle!
January 27, 2015 – The North Carolina Next Generation Network (NCNGN) welcomes today’s announcement by Google Fiber. Google will join AT&T in deploying gigabit service in central North Carolina.0 Today’s announcement means many residents in Carrboro, Cary, Chapel Hill, Durham, and Raleigh will soon be able to choose from at least two providers offering gigabit service. Residents in Winston-Salem, Morrisville, and Garner will have gigabit service available from at least one provider. Beyond giving residents the option for broadband speeds 100 times faster than the average speed that consumers use today, competition among providers should help lower prices even for consumers who subscribe to slower broadband speeds.
NCNGN looks forward to continuing our collaboration and engaging the community to increase digital inclusion and support application development efforts that will take advantage of these next generation networks.
