America's Gigabit City

Xcellence
Salisbury is proud to announce the City's recent upgrade to being a gigabit city. Thanks to Fibrant's new 1 gigabit Internet speeds, the City of Salisbury can offer businesses and residents a top-tier fiber optic infrastructure. There is no faster internet speed in North Carolina, and no competitors in the Charlotte region come close. Why wait for Google Fiber or for Timer Warner Cable's "coming soon" speeds when Salisbury has the fastest Internet right now?

What is a Gigabit City?

All around the country, local municipalities are looking to the future needs of their citizens. The Internet is a major part of our futures and there is growing concern over the "digital divide" between groups with high-speed access to the World Wide Web and everyone else. In the words of Heather Burnett Gold, President of the FTTH Council "We're responding to the overwhelming interest in obtaining gigabit connectivity from community and business leaders across the U.S. by giving them the tools they need to make sure their communities stay competitive."​

For businesses looking to setup high-bandwidth operations on a fully-functional 1 gigabit network, Salisbury is the only city in the region that offers that opportunity. Entrepreneurs can innovate, expand and prosper on this broadband platform of the future. Compared to the national average, 1 gigabit Internet speeds are 100x faster.
