WRAL TechWire reports that Charlotte and the Triangle are moving forward in the Google Fiber planning process:
On Thursday, Google’s fiber team reported that all metro areas under expansion consideration had completed a “checklist of items” to help Google determine what cities might be the best targets.
That news came on the same day that Google Fiber advocates unveiled a film titled “FiberedUp” that is designed to help convince Google to pick the Triangle.
