Abstract:
After the city of Wilson created its own fiber Internet service in 2008, the city sought to expand this service throughout Wilson County. This system threatened large telecoms, like Time Warner Cable, that do not want the competition. The state of North Carolina, however, recently passed laws that require municipal telecoms to pay the same fee as private telecoms, like Suddenlink and Time Warner, effectively making it nearly impossible for other cities to create their own broadband network.

Abstract:
INDY’s editor in chief, Jeffrey Billman, reflects on his observations about the Triangle since he arrived in January. He learned that North Carolina is spread out, has numerous festivals and fairs, a plethora of hiking trails, a great Greenway system, and unpredictable weather.

Abstract:
Bernie Sanders was brought to a halt as Hillary Clinton racked up big wins in North Carolina, Florida, and Ohio during last week’s primaries.

House Bill 2, the anti-LGBTQ legislation, has devastated North Carolina’s image. Most of the bill’s economic damage will be on the state’s urban centers, especially the Triangle and Charlotte.
