Troy Cable has spent more than three decades providing the best in communications technology to the populations of southeastern Alabama, stretching up to Montgomery. Today, the company is ready to meet the next challenges of a fast-changing communications world.
WHEN WAS TROY CABLE FOUNDED?
Visionary Harold Freeman started Troy Cablevision in 1973 to service Troy and Pike County before a buyout to TCI of Alabama. After a noncompete agreement expired, Freeman started Troy Cable in 1986 to bring cable services
— and later, broadband, phone and security — to underserved areas in Alabama.
WHERE IS TROY CABLE BASED?
Our headquarters are in Troy, but we have a regional reach. We have offices in Enterprise, Luverne, Ozark, Dothan and Montgomery. And, our fiber network extends through Pike, Crenshaw, Coffee, Covington, Dale, Geneva, Houston and Montgomery counties. We currently have 113 miles of fiber in Montgomery County alone.
NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES?
WHAT ARE THE COMPANY’S PRIMARY PRODUCTS AND SERVICES?
We provide internet, voice, transport, video, security and home-automation services.
WHAT MAKES TROY CABLE STAND OUT?
“Vision.” Our founder has always been referred to as a person ahead of his time. Our business, due in great part to leadership that is now four generations strong, has always been at the forefront of technology. It started with Community Antenna Television or CATV systems in the 1970s. We have evolved with fiber optic technology. Today, our fiber network is available to homes and businesses, with speeds up to a gigabit per second.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF USING A LOCALLY BASED CABLE AND INTERNET COMPANY?
We are local and agile. We can start up your service much faster. Once in place, changes and additions to service are typically completed within 24 hours or less. Also, all of our employees are based in Alabama. We are local people who care about you and your business. Our Troy call center is available around the clock.
WHAT IS ON THE HORIZON?
We’ll soon have a 10 Gbps native capacity on all of our enterprise and business connections.
