The Consequences Of Google Fiber

Google Fiber logo


Faster internet is coming to North Carolina. Tech giant Google announced it will build ultra-high-speed broadband networks in the Triangle and Charlotte areas. 

The move opens questions about accessibility, cost and competition.  Host Frank Stasio talks with Leoneda Inge, changing economy reporter for WUNC; Lauren Ohnesorge, reporter for the Triangle Business Journal; Alistair Barr, reporter for the Wall Street Journal; and Joy Diaz, reporter for KUTradio in Austin, Tex., about the expansion of fiber optic networks.

Will Michaels is WUNC's Weekend Host and Reporter.
Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
