C Spire announced its next step in developing a viable fiber-optic network in the state of Alabama.
This week, C Spire officially announced its acquisition of Troy Cablevision, Inc. C Spire acquired the company to take advantage of the previously existing broadband infrastructure in Pike, Coffee, Crenshaw, and Dale counties.
Troy Cablevision, Inc. has provided internet, phone, cable, and fiber broadband in southern Alabama since 1985. Troy Cablevision’s headquarters is in Troy, with other regional offices in Elba, Enterprise, Luverne, and Ozark.
According to Hu Meena, the CEO of C Spire, finalizing the acquisition was a significant step in the expansion of C Spire into the state.
“I am thrilled to welcome our Troy Cablevision and Union Springs Telephone Company associates to C Spire.” Meena said, “I know we all share the simple goal of working together and serving our customers and our local community.”
C Spire has been working to develop fiber-optic broadband internet services in Alabama in the recent past. C Spire has had great success with internet and mobile services in Mississippi and is working to create the same services in Alabama. C Spire plans to offer gigabit internet services for households as well as business locations.
“We’ve made it a major priority to invest in and expand fiber-based network deployment and enhancements throughout Alabama, and we’re pleased to be providing these services in the Wiregrass,” Meena said. “Our commitment to local customers remains, and we intend to offer the same level of hometown service Troy Cablevision has been known to provide.
C Spire has storefront locations in the Mobile area. It is currently offering fiber services in 13 markets in the state.
C Spire has also announced further plans to accelerate the deployment of fiber broadband internet in markets across Alabama. C Spire plans to invest $500 million over the next three years to continue its broadband expansion into the state.
