Remember Asheville's bid to get Google's 100 gigabit Internet service? Consider that the average Internet speed in the U.S. is about 7 megabytes per second (hint: that's so much slower than gigabit service, it feels like old dial-up speeds), that about 48,000 Western North Carolinians don't have access to 4 Mbps service (the FCC definition of a broadband minimum), that North Carolina ranks 27th in broadband speeds (10 spots behind Guam). Now take a look at what one small town down east has done on its own.
Although broadband or high-speed Internet access is fairly common in Asheville, many Western North Carolinians can't get it if they wanted to, largely because the infrastructure doesn't exist. Thanks to a grant, MAIN has a mapping tool that could help get access to the nearly 48,000 WNC residents who are missing out on the digital revolution.
