Sept 16 Talk: What Gigabit Fiber can mean for Charlotte
Come to IgniteCharlotte on September 16 and hear Charlotte Hearts Gigabit co-founder Alan Fitzpatrick talk about what Charlotte stands to gain. For details on all the IgniteCharlotte talks, the venue, and to register, visit their website here.
We're committed to attracting the best talent to Charlotte. Improvements in Internet infrastructure will bring the best and brightest technical and creative talent to the city. Businesses will find that Gigabit Fiber will help attract highly skilled people in technical fields, making recruiting an even easier process.
The promise of Gigabit Internet is gigabit (Gb) synchronous Internet service to the home. Video files, Big Data files, and other large applications will load much faster than on today's infrastructure. This benefits virtual workers whose home Internet connection may exceed that in the office.
High-impact entrepreneurs create the most jobs. When Gigabit Fiber was deployed in Kansas City there was an immediate increase in entrepreneurial activity including: Kansas City Startup Village, Home for Hackers, and a Sprint Accelerator powered by Techstars. Brad Feld even purchased a FiberHouse!
