Google Fiber could be coming to the Triangle, and executives are excited about what the news could mean – both for their businesses, their households and their communities.
So I suggested they share their thoughts on what Google Fiber would mean to the Triangle. They were happy to oblige:
Scot Wingo, CEO of Morrisville-based ChannelAdvisor (NYSE: ECOM):
“Faster speed and more choices are a rising tide for all internet applications, including ecommerce.”
Machelle Sanders, RTP-based vice president and general manager of Weston, Mass.-based Biogen Idec (Nasdaq: BIIB):
“While it sounds like a decision is still a ways off, it’s exciting to consider the possibilities that could come from bringing this technology to our region. This kind of development attracts the kinds of people that are going to drive the innovation economy here in the Triangle, and we definitely have the kind of community that would be able to leverage the opportunities that the Google technology could bring.”
