Raleigh NC named Forbes ‘Most Wired’ City

Raleigh NC named Forbes 'Most Wired' CitySurprising many last week was the naming by Forbes magazine of Raleigh North Carolina as the #1 ‘Most Wired’ American city, just beating out Atlanta and Seattle. Several factors determined the 2010 rankings, including the penetration of broadband access into the area population, Wi-Fi hotspots, and marketplace options for broadband.

“The city’s high concentration of IT companies, research universities and state capital resources” were cited as deciding factors according to the article. No doubt the recent adoption of free Wi-Fi in downtown Raleigh played in. See the full city rankings here.

Also of note, when we saw the article it made us smile– Forbes used of one of KCG Art Director David Kilian’s Raleigh skyline stock photos.
