As of September 3, 2015 Salisbury moved beyond being one of the America’s true Gig Cities. Not satisfied Salisbury is now America’s 10 Gig City.
This innovation is a result of a collaboration between Fibrant, our technology partner Calix, and Catawba College.
As of 2015, Catawba College is the first to take advantage of Fibrant’s 10 Gigabits per second Internet connection!
“Regardless of what discipline you are in, the future is all about rich immersive media and being able to communicate with and collaborate with others in real-time regardless of where people are in time and space.
That a small college like Catawba will be able to start experimenting with that this year, and internet bandwidth is no longer a limiting factor, is very exciting,
And to put the speed thing in perspective, having 10 Gbps gives us the potential to be more than 10 times faster on campus.” – Catawba College
