NC: City of Wilson to Offer Gigabit Internet Service to Customers by July | Greenlight

NC: City of Wilson to Offer Gigabit Internet Service to Customers by July | Greenlight | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

 

Greenlight, the broadband provider owned and operated by the City of Wilson, today announced that it will begin offering gigabit Internet connectivity services to its customers no later than July 2013.   “In January, the Federal Communications Commission issued a challenge to communities to provide gigabit service by 2015, and we’re proud to answer that challenge now.  We are excited to launch our gigabit service and allow our customers to be the first in the state to experience such high speed Internet access,” said Will Aycock, general manager of Greenlight.  “Ultra-high speed Internet will help position Wilson for the future and will provide our businesses and residents with the tools they need to succeed.” In January, the Federal Communications Commission Chairman issued the “Gigabit City Challenge” which challenged providers to offer gigabit service in at least one community in each state by 2015. Gigabit services are approximately 100 times faster than average high-speed Internet connections. Greenlight was formed in 2008 to provide an independent, locally-owned and operated option for television, telephone and Internet broadband connectivity for Wilson residents.  Since then, Greenlight has grown to provide its services to more than 6,000 residential customers and businesses and the Wilson County School System.  In addition, Greenlight provides free wireless Internet access throughout the downtown Wilson area. “Since its inception, Greenlight has worked to provide reliable, affordable products that our customers need and to anticipate changes needed to keep our community at the forefront of technological advances.  We were the first in the state to offer Fiber to the Home for reliability and are pleased to continue expanding our network,” Aycock said. Greenlight services are provided through its Fiber to the Home (FTTH) system which ensures the availability of reliable and advanced services for homes and businesses.  Greenlight’s FTTH is comprised of 100 percent fiber optics.   The gigabit service will be added to Greenlight’s existing suite of services and will be offered as an optional service to Greenlight customers. Click headline to access Greelight website--

Some Storytelling Today: Hate Is Louder Than Love. Change It

Some Storytelling Today: Hate Is Louder Than Love. Change It | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

"I heard someone say recently, 'hate is louder than love.' And there is truth to that. But when intolerance, fear, and xenophobia are on the march, when the hate can feel deafening...we are going to keep working with every cell of our beings to turn up the volume on love." -Dave Isay

Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 5, 2:39 PM

If you are into storytelling, you are probably into StoryCorps. I am passionate about what they stand for.

 

Hate is easy. Stories promoting hate are easy. It takes courage, character, principles, and leadership to not go there. StoryCorp shows us the way.

 

Yesterday I received an email blast from them asking for donations. I rarely promote an organization. But their message is important, particularly in today's world. Donating is totally up to you, and I have no relationship with the organization.

 

Here's a short excerpt from the email I received about their latest campaign, "Listening is an act of love":

 

"I heard someone say recently, 'hate is louder than love.' And there is truth to that. But when intolerance, fear, and xenophobia are on the march, when the hate can feel deafening...we are going to keep working with every cell of our beings to turn up the volume on love." -Dave Isay

Dear Karen,

At StoryCorps, we know that listening is an act of love. That is why we feel so fortunate to be able to share the power of our work with you...the work we do has never been more important.

Your gift of $50 or more will help us continue our mission to preserve and share humanity's stories...Join today and we'll also send you a copy of our book, Listening Is an Act of Love, and with a gift of $250 or more, you'll receive the collector's edition of Listening is an Act of Love, which includes a CD containing the audio featured in the book.


Please help us as we continue to turn up the volume on love by becoming a StoryCorpsCorps Member today.
Warm regards, Brian Schumann

 

It's an opportunity I thought you should know about. Check them out. Yes, storytelling and story listening is an act of love. Even if you don't donate, take a stand today for storytelling love instead of hate.

Karen

Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 5, 1:01 PM

At first I thought this article was just going to be the same-old-same-old stuff on why storytelling is important in marketing. Yawn. Been there. Done that.

 

But as I scanned the post I said, "Hey, I love the visuals! And the points made are different than I expected. Yay!"

 

So here it is. I particularly like the points about Value and Memory. Really nice.

 

Enjoy this article.
