Barton College, in large part thanks to its access to high-speed gigabit Internet, is helping students develop the skills necessary for their futures — futures that will undoubtedly be directed by technology.
Eastern North Carolina cities like Greenville and Wilson have seen a rise in industries outside of their agricultural economic mainstays in recent years.
Collaborations between public and private organizations charter innovation in Wilson, and proponents of the city-owned fiber optic network use it as a building block for a brighter tomorrow.

Gig East is Wilson’s home for technology and innovation networking. Our events focus around gigs – whether its conversation around our gigabit network, Greenlight, or creative conversations inspired by the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park. We bring eastern North Carolina together to explore next generation technology. Join us for our bi-monthly meet ups and our annual technology summit, held in early November.
