This site is maintained by the City of Wilson, NC. It was created to spread the word about a flurry of monopoly-protection bills created by the cable company. For three years, 2007, 2009 and 2010, the company’s lobbyists pushed a bill called “The Level Playing Field”; the number changed each year, but the language was essentially the same.
If you live in Wilson, your all-fiber optic network, Greenlight, was largely exempted from the new law. Nearly 6,000 households and businesses subscribe to our services, however, the new law limits Greenlight to areas inside Wilson County only.
Our 40, 60 and 100 Mbps speeds will remain available to anyone in the network, and yes, the upload speeds are just as fast as the downloads. If you’re a Greenlight subscriber, your service will continue uninterrupted.
While this battle is on pause in NC, this site will not be updated unless necessary. However, we will leave it in place because many of you have linked to posts here.
Thanks to all of you for your help!
