Bibb County has a Internet Speed & Connectivity problem, just like most of rural Alabama and America. Lack of high speed internet access is a problem for just about everyone these days. Most importantly, lack of reliable business class connectivity is a barrier to the economic growth and development in Bibb County, especially to the South end.
The City of Centreville recently approved a franchise application for Alabama Lightwave, Inc. to bring high speed broadband internet service to the City. The generally accepted modern definition of high speed broadband means that residential applications must be capable of delivering download speeds of not less than 25 megabits per second and business applications could range from 100 to 1000 megabits per second (Gigabit Speed).
Josh Lambert, a local business owner and President of the startup company Alabama Lightwave, Inc., has plans to provide high speed broadband coverage to all of Bibb County and he is getting started in 2019.
The company has just launched a pilot program providing high speed wireless service to a limited number of customers centered around the town square in Centreville. The proof of concept startup will offer wireless speeds up to 100 megabits per second upload and 100 megabits per second download speed after the test period and will guarantee higher reliability (uptime) and satisfaction than consumers in the area may be presently experiencing. If the market demand is there the company plans to offer up to 1000 megabit service or up to 1 Gigabit.
The next areas to be served will be those areas that serve the highest number of customers, businesses and residences, driven by market surveys. The company’s goal is to serve everyone in Bibb County who is looking for reliable and high speed internet service at a competitive market rate.
