Micro to Macro Broadband in North Carolina

Time 10/17/17 02:30PM-02:50PM

Room Grand Ballroom A

Session Abstract

North Carolina is pursuing better broadband at both the micro and macro level. This session will describe work the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is doing to extend cooperation and connectivity with its local communities of Chapel Hill and Carrboro, and how that integrates into efforts MCNC is making to enable similar activities all over the state. A multifaceted approach and diverse partnerships are important for creating a landscape of highly connected communities. MCNC can share its experiences as a longstanding broadband innovation partner with a recent statewide expansion of its research and education fiber network, bringing opportunities to navigate its evolving role in broadband development for North Carolina. Adair Thaxton from UNC and Stephanie Jane Edwards of MCNC will present.
