Gigabit fiber means more than just faster Internet. Low latency, virtual networks and frictionless online experiences enable a new world of possibilities. Next generation Internet applications are challenging from both a technological and a sociological standpoint. Software developers are challenged to incorporate new ways of thinking about networks, while civic leaders are challenged to think about human networks that transcend traditional geopolitical borders. Learn how technologists and civic leaders are working together to create meaningful opportunities over gigabit fiber, and how the developer community and civic leaders in your city can prepare now for the fiber networks that will be deployed in the future.
