Current Status

Under the NCNGN agreement, AT&T connected 8 of 13 public housing locations with plans for the remaining sites. This provides low cost and free service to residents.

Under the NCNGN agreement, AT&T connected 2 community centers with more in progress.

The number of internet interconnections among The Town of Chapel Hill, UNC, The Town of Carrboro and MCNC continues to increase. This creates a more robust and redundant network supporting the Towns, the University, the schools as well as the residents.

Planning underway for improving connections using Town dark fiber for the CHCCS in several locations
Computer upgrades for the community centers is underway providing better computers and utilization of the gigabit connections from AT&T.
