Race Builds For Super-Fast Broadband In NC Cities

RALEIGH, N.C. A telecommunications giant says it could start offering broadband Internet service in North Carolina that's ten times faster than anything now available.


AT&T said Thursday it's in talks with a group of North Carolina research universities and communities to build a network offering 1 gigabit per second speed. The company says that speed allows an HD online movie to download in about 30 seconds.


Cleveland County-based RST Fiber said last month it's already installed 3,000 miles of fiber optics across North Carolina and is weeks away from offering 1 gigabit service to areas of Raleigh, Charlotte and Asheville.


Charlotte technology leaders are pushing for Google to pick the city from among nine U.S. metro areas for its Google Fiber data network. Advocates say the service would attract jobs and businesses.
