Next Century Cities supports mayors and community leaders across the country as they seek to ensure that everyone has fast, affordable and reliable internet access.
October 7, 2019 was not only the first day of National Digital Inclusion Week, it marked the inaugural meeting of the Public Interest Technology University Network (PIT-UN), a conference hosted at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Public and private foundations joined forces to fund public interest technology research, training programs, and curriculum at colleges and universities across the country.
As Wilson, N.C. transitioned from “the World’s Greatest Tobacco Market” to “NC’s First Gigabit City,” local leaders worked hard to prioritize equitable access and opportunities for all residents.
