The City of Charlotte is bridging the digital divide and beaming opportunity to neighborhoods in West Charlotte, helping residents connect for school, work and entertainment.
Along with Avid Xchange, the city is now providing free, high-speed Wi-Fi to multiple areas within the Corridors of Opportunity program.
The Corridors program focuses nearly $40 million on six key corridors in the crescent area of the city.
These are areas where the city has committed to creating safe, prosperous communities for residents to build legacies for future generations.
How It Works
A newly installed gigabit fiber connection beams a signal from an antenna on the roof of AvidXchange headquarters to both the Camp North End Water Tower and the water tower off Beatties Ford Road.
The set-up provides free, high-speed internet access at a pocket park at The Ritz at Washington Heights located at the intersection of Tate Street and Beatties Ford Road and allows for future expansion in other areas along that corridor and the Graham Street corridor.
