Internet Sign-Up Event: Oaks at Cherry
February 27 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
All residents living at Oaks at Cherry are invited to attend the Access Charlotte internet sign-up event hosted by the Center for Digital Equity! The City of Charlotte has partnered with Spectrum to launch the Access Charlotte program. Access Charlotte provides FREE high-speed internet to residents of your housing property. The Digital Navigator Service at the Center for Digital Equity will visit your property to provide 1:1 guidance to help you sign up!
Access Charlotte program participants will be served by digital navigators. Digital navigators are individuals whose purpose is to help meet digital needs such as technical support, education surrounding other available resources, and digital literacy training. Assistance can be requested from a digital navigator by calling 311 or using the CLT+ app. Along with this there will be aid to free internet access with no modem fees, data caps or contracts.
Access Charlotte aims to bridge the gap of the digital divide in the greater Charlotte area. Access Charlotte will improve and size up to provide free Spectrum Internet and Advanced Wi-Fi to over 5,000 households and 15 community spaces. Using funding from the American Rescue Plan Act, Charlotte has implemented the two-year program to pay for in-home internet, as well as allocate dollars toward efforts related to digital navigators.
Households in the Access Charlotte program area are eligible for this initiative regardless of whether they are current Spectrum customers. Those who are not current customers can sign up to request a self-installation kit and start receiving the service by calling 1-855-326-5115 or visiting a specialized Spectrum website. Current customers will automatically be included in the program.
