WEST POINT, GA. (Oct. 15, 2019) – Point Broadband, a leader in delivering world-class fiber optic broadband services to rural and small-town communities in the United States, will soon expand its Opelika, Ala. operations into Auburn.
The company purchased the fiber telecommunication network and assets from the City of Opelika in November 2018, and immediately applied for a cable franchise that would allow for expansion into Auburn. The franchise agreement was approved tonight during the Auburn City Council meeting.
“Since acquiring the OPS fiber assets from the City of Opelika, our goal was to expand into Auburn,” said Point Broadband General Manager Bruce Schoonover. “We are excited to finally reach this milestone of franchise approval so we can begin to develop a plan for the underserved residents and businesses in Auburn. Our service has been well received in Opelika, and we have enjoyed steady growth in that market. We are looking forward to becoming a more active member of the Auburn community as we expand our business there.”
More details will follow on Point Broadband’s expansion plan and the homes and businesses that will be the company’s service footprint.
