Tri-Gig Regional Collaborative Selects North State To Evaluate Broadband Infrastructure Plan

North State has been selected by the City of Greensboro, along with the cities of Burlington and High Point, Guilford County, UNC Greensboro, NC A&T State University and the Piedmont Triad Regional Council (PTRC) as its preferred vendor to initiate discussions regarding regional high-speed broadband efforts. This collaboration, known as Tri-Gig, is to encourage the development of high-speed broadband networks to meet the technological needs of current and future businesses, educational institutions, healthcare, and residents. A primary goal of the Tri-Gig initiative is to leverage existing assets, such as fiber optic lines, and create additional assets to assist Internet service providers with building and deploying high-speed broadband networks in Greensboro and surrounding areas.

“Beginning a dialogue and initiating planning about becoming a ‘gigabit community’ that would make us more attractive to future business and create lots of exciting possibilities are great first steps. Developing a unique public/private partnership with providers like North State will help us achieve an architectural footprint that will expand gigabit services to parts of the community,” said Jane Nickles, director of Greensboro’s Information Technology Department.

Members of Tri-Gig will initially work with North State to discuss and formalize certain pilot projects throughout the area. The long-term vision is to develop a gigabit fiber network that fosters innovation, stimulates economic growth, drives job creation, and serves new areas of development in the community.

“North State is thrilled that Tri-Gig selected us to be part of the planning for this community initiative,” said Scott Watts, Chief Marketing Officer for North State.  “We believe high-speed broadband is an important part of the economic growth of this area and are excited to learn more about Tri-Gig’s plans in the coming months.”
