Troy Cablevision is a regional cable television, cable internet, Security Systems, and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) provider that serves Southeast Alabama. Their motto is "Your Hometown Communications Company". It is currently the only cable TV provider in the country that carries Pursuit Channel (based in Luverne) 24 hours a day.[1] The range of their services include Cable Television, Digital telephone, Broadband as well as Security Systems. Their employees are based in Alabama, from network engineers to receptionists – all the way to the CEO.

Government Grants

Troy Cablevision, Inc. was awarded a total sum of $26.1 million in federal stimulus funds in August 2010 to build a middle-mile fiber optic broadband network connecting Pike, Coffee, Crenshaw and Dale counties to Internet POP points in Montgomery and Dothan. The Southeast Alabama SmartBand initiative calls for 595 miles of fiber. The service provider already belongs to a public–private joint venture with the South Alabama Electrical Cooperative for an effort to enable smart grid energy management services for the counties' 17,000 electric customers. That initiative will include two backhaul routes to Atlanta, which could boost connectivity and attract economic development to the area.[2]
