To support the Charlotte's Web network in the Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill (SC) area, providing citizens and school children with access to information resources. Coalition members include the Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County; Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools; Central Piedmont Community College; WTVI-TV; the University of North Carolina; Southern Bell; Time-Warner Cable; and Vision Cable. Initially, 114 public access terminals will be located in libraries, neighborhood and senior centers, shelters, health care facilities, classrooms, and school libraries. Extensive computer literacy training will be provided, and the system will be linked to the North Carolina Information Highway, a fiber network connecting rural and urban areas with broadband data and video. The system will employ switched multi-megabit data service (SMDS), Unix servers, VSAT technology, and expanded interactive video using ATM.
