Troy Cablevision, Inc.
Troy Cablevision, a competitive local exchange carrier in Alabama, proposes to deploy a fiber-optic network to
provide a critical new broadband route between four southeast Alabama counties—Pike, Crenshaw, Coffee, and
Dale—and key Internet points of presence, or “on-ramps” to the global Internet, in Montgomery and Dothan,
Alabama. Community-serving organizations in all six areas typically lack Internet access at the speeds
necessary to provide key services like Next Generation 911, distance learning, and telemedicine. Troy
Cablevision has also formed a public-private partnership with the South Alabama Electric Cooperative to enable
advanced “smartgrid” energy management services for 17,000 electricity consumers in Crenshaw, Pike, and
Coffee Counties, significantly improving energy efficiency in the region. The network plans to support economic
growth by providing redundant rings, including two backhaul routes to Atlanta, enabling the high-capacity,
reliable broadband capabilities required to attract major businesses to the region.
