Why the Town of Cary isn’t waiting for Google Fiber – February 21, 2013

If you’ve been hiding under a rock, then you missed the announcement by Google(Nasdaq: GOOG) that it’s considering the Triangle for Google Fiber – a technology that provides ultra-high internet speeds and could mean cheaper, faster internet for everyone.

The Town of Cary, however, just released a response saying that although it’s “very excited about Google’s announcement,” it remains committed to another fiber project– the North Carolina Next Generation Network.

The town first committed to NCNGN when Google rejected Cary’s bid for Google Fiber in 2010. In the letter, penned by MayorHarold Weinbrecht, Cary wants “to make it clear” that the town is still committed to NCNGN, part of the nationwide Gig U project aimed at installing fiber networks across the United States.
