Faster Internet Speed: When Will It Reach The Triad?

Just a few years after Triad cities fell over themselves trying and failing to lure Google’s gigabit fiber initiative, superfast broadband appears to finally be finding its own way to the area. But when will it arrive, and what will it mean for you and local businesses?

Google chose Kansas City from among 1,100 or so hopeful communities around the country to install its first community-wide fiber optic network cable of delivering gigabit broadband speeds. Some companies, including North State and AT&T, are investing in initiatives to bring ultrafast Internet speeds to the Triad.
