I just came back from Russia where i used internet while staying at my friends house. It seemed pretty fast to me(coming from my own Comcast 20mb/sec plan) so i decided to check the speed.

Comment on Gov. Perdue Announces $115 Million in Federal Recovery Funds to Expand Broadband Access in North Carolina by Hunter /2010/08/gov-perdue-announces-115-million-in-federal-recovery-funds-to-expand-broadband-access-in-north-carolina/#comment-148 Mon, 18 Oct 2010 13:51:53 +0000 /?p=932#comment-148 Actually, much of this will directly benefit Asheville. ERC Broadband is a partner to MCNC and will receive fiber on this build (from Round 1). As goes Round 2, ERC Broadband is a subrecipient to MCNC and will build roughly 105 miles of additional fiber in the region including approx 25 miles of fiber in Buncombe County.
ERC Broadband continues its efforts to driectly support and grow the western North Carolina technology community!

You would think that rural area improvements will indirectly help us here in Aville at some point.
