A Feasibility and Engineering Study of Extending Cable TV Programming to Surrounding Communities. Planning Grant Report.
Lakeshore Technical Inst., Cleveland, WI.
This report chronicles planning grant activities undertaken by the Lakeshore Technical Institute (LTI) and documents findings of a study to determine the feasibility and costs of extending public and educational programs from the LTI campus in Cleveland, Wisconsin, to surrounding communities. The geographic service area, regional telecommunications needs, a comparison of three technologies, financing plans, and community support and education efforts of the planning phase are examined and summarized in the first section. Three extensive appendices provide detailed information supporting and explaining the findings. Appendices include: details of a survey identifying institutional and organizational needs; a technical feasibility and cost study which examines three technical options in order to make recommendations for a regional communications delivery system; and the proposal narrative which explains the need for the regional system and describes the implementation approach to be taken if the construction grant is awarded.
