Will Aycock, GM of Wilson’s Greenlight Network, Talks Broadband, Future

Greenlight is the City of Wilson’s fiber-to-the-home network. It has been operating for 10 years and now serves almost 10,000 customers. Will Aycock, general manager of the network, responds to questions from WRAL Techwire about Greenlight, which has gained notoriety statewide and beyond as it provides Internet services to major employers, small businesses, non-profits, schools, residents and city government. Aycock has helped grow Wilson’s gigabit fiber internet technology into a model worthy of replication. “It is important to have a strategy to make sure your community is not left behind from a communications infrastructure perspective,” Aycock says. “There are many models to approach this challenge and each community should choose the one that best fits their needs.”
