Gigabit - Killer Apps
The promise of Gigabit Internet is 1 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. Great NYT article: Two Cities With Blazing Internet Speed Search for a Killer App.
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!
