Fiber optics trial
BellSouth plans to build a video and telephone network infrastructure on Daniel Island in Charleston, SC--a 4000-acre site of woodlands, fields and marsh-lined waterways. The fiber optics trial is planned to provide homeowners and businesses with advanced voice, data and entertainment services. BellSouth`s fiber-optic systems let cable-TV services be accessed through a customer`s telephone line, thus eliminating the need for a separate cable-line installation. BellSouth is also testing fiber optics in Chamblee, GA; Vestiva Hills in Birmingham, AL; and World Golf Village in Jacksonville, FL.
