Program aims to get more people online

WILMINGTON -- A new program designed to get people online who may not be able to afford the internet is one step closer to becoming a reality. Wilmington City Councilman Earl Sheridan helped design the plan for the e-Tech advisory committee. Wilmington was officially designated an e-community by the e-NC Authority. The plan would bring computers and wireless internet access to people who otherwise would not be able to afford it. Sheridan said, "We'll have to get grants and other funding though to help pay for that." If you want to learn more about the program or possibly serve as a member of the technology advisory committee you can go to the Wilmington City Council chambers Tuesday at six p.m. The president of the e-NC Authority will be on hand to answer questions.
