Growing the Gigabit Ecosystem

Ride with us to Wilson on November 4! We have a limited number of free tickets including shuttle transportation from RTP's The Frontier to Wilson and back next Friday. Reserve your seat by using promotional code "wralshuttle" on the Eventbrite.

WRAL TechWire’s Executive Exchange will feature a keynote by former FCC Chief of Staff Blair Levin. Levin will provide analysis as to what Google Fiber's delay in expansion may mean for the gigabit infrastructure itself. Is it bad news, and will it lead to more metro-funded fiber networks?

We will also be highlighting the transformation of a former tobacco town into the first gigabit ecosystem in North Carolina, and learning how ultra-high speed Internet is helping spur innovation across industries.
