Efforts to speed up wireless internet service throughout western North Carolina are speeding up themselves, thanks to a six-city partnership.
Wifi has rapidly speed up throughout the region in the last decade, but Bill Sederburg says it’s time for the next step. The coordinator of the West Next Generation Network says that is “gigabit” internet service.
“It means much faster downloads for video. It means the ability for hospitals to have branch campuses (that can) access to MRI and X-ray images and stuff like that”, according to Sederburg.
