Giga-here, giga-there, but not giga-everywhere yet

In an article published Monday, July 13, 2015, Wesley Young of the Winston-Salem Journal writes:

“A year from the summer when Winston-Salem inked a deal with AT&T to smooth the way for super-fast Internet service here, AT&T officials say the service, called GigaPower, is available in neighborhoods all over town.”

“Winston-Salem is part of a group of cities and universities called the Next Generation Network, which was formed to bring ultra-high-speed Internet to locations around the state. Ultra-high-speed means up to 1 gigabit per second, a speed that AT&T says would allow someone to download an online high-definition movie in as little as 36 seconds. When the city signed a deal with AT&T last summer to bring the service here, it agreed to provide up to 20 free connections to community sites. So far, the only community site hooked up is the one at Russell Community Center.”
