The Raleigh City Council on Tuesday approved an agreement with AT&T that allows the company to begin rolling out ultra-high-speed Internet service in Raleigh and other North Carolina communities.
The deal also must be approved by elected officials in Carrboro, Cary, Chapel Hill, Durham and Winston-Salem all of which are cities where AT&T believes there is enough customer demand and local government support to warrant making the costly fiber installations that are necessary for such a network.
Gail Roper, Raleighs chief information officer, said the city will work to help AT&T through the permitting process for installing the network of fiberoptic cables. This is really a construction project in many ways, and well have to make sure we can get through our internal processes, she told the city council.
