Gig.U Initiative Still Going Strong

September 27th, 2013

The private sector, which stepped in to save the day with Gig.U, is still going strong. The initiative, which stands for University Community Next Generation Innovation Project, was spear-headed by a group of several universities and included collaboration from top ISPs.

The project is not for the masses but was created to and still does target new technology businesses to start up near universities so that they may too tap into the world-class broadband infrastructure.  Community members are loving the 1 Gbps they are getting from internet service providers. And new businesses are now able to compete globally and tap into the vast, young talent pool from the nearby campuses.
