Roanoke, AL— TEC’s Five Points Community Broadband Project is 100% complete in Five Points, Alabama providing residents and businesses with access to the fastest, most advanced technology available. This grant from Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs allowed for an investment of over $396,000 into broadband infrastructure.
Fiber optic broadband is a future-proof technology that increases property values and improves the quality of life. Fiber broadband means better access to health care through telemedicine, more educational opportunities through distance learning, increased opportunities for economic development, and of course, a better video streaming and gaming experience. The potential is unlimited.
TEC Executive Vice President Joey Garner says fiber is the gold standard for broadband.
“Fiber broadband typically is only available in big cities, and we are excited to offer this future-proof technology to those living and working in these Roanoke communities,” she says. “TEC strives to ensure that our customers have access to the best, most advanced internet technology available.”
TEC launched this fiber project in September 2019 and has recently completed it. The project connects 134 homes and businesses and includes 7 miles of fiber. "Having access to fiber internet has changed our world!" states Sherry Keeble, CEO of Keeble Construction. "We are able to efficiently do business by quickly connecting with customers and vendors. We are very appreciative of TEC for bringing fiber to our area."
