News capsule

In honor of Charlotte Agenda’s upcoming fireside chat, “How to get into politics with Edwin Peacock,” we’re asking you: How could the incredible speed of fiberoptic 1GB internet be used to improve the political process? How could such speed improve voter registration, stimulate the free flow of information so vital to democracy or increase citizen participation in public life?

We firmly believe that major innovations are just around the corner, thanks to the speed of AT&T GigaPower – think 25 songs downloaded in less than 1 second, an HD TV show downloaded in 3 seconds, an HD movie downloaded in 36 seconds…

Submit your ideas on how this level of speed could be used in a political campaign or another political arena, and you will be entered to win a Jawbone UP24 Wireless Activity and Sleep Tracker. Unlimited entries allowed. 

See Official Rules and Contest Details below.
