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 KUT radio in Austin, Tex., about the expansion of fiber optic networks.
