Workers for Tombigbee Electric Co-op have been in Haleyville in the past two weeks installing fiber optic cables for Freedom Fiber, a subsidiary of Tombigbee Electric. According to Steve Foshee, who heads the Tombigbee Co-Op, at a recent meeting of the Haleyville Rotary Club, work started in May with the installation fiber optics for the new high-speed internet service. Even though Tombigbee does not provide power to the Haleyville area, it has a working agreement with Alabama Power to use their poles to run the fiber cable. Mr. Foshee stated that the definition of high-speed internet service is at least 100mbs, both down and up and that is what will be available from Freedom Fiber. Commercial service will be available up to 1GB. You can find more information on the Freedom Fiber Facebook page.
