AUBURN, Ala. -- Competition in data, video and voice broadband services is coming to Auburn. A Knology groundbreaking event Thursday, April 1, will mark the start of the construction process in the Auburn area. By late summer or early fall Auburn residents and businesses will have access to Knology’s state-of-the-art data, video and voice services provided over the industry’s most advanced fiber network.

The first step to bring Knology to Auburn was when the Auburn City Council unanimously approved a non-exclusive cable franchise agreement with Knology. Network mapping and engineering analysis will begin April 5, with construction scheduled to start 60 to 90 days thereafter. The first customers are currently expected to begin using Knology services during late August or early September in the area south of the interstate along Moores Mill Road.

“This is a great opportunity for Knology to build a new broadband network in the Auburn area that will bring much needed choice to the market,” Royce Ard, general manager, Knology of Columbus, said. “Competition offers many benefits to consumers. Residents and businesses in Auburn will soon be able to choose Knology’s fiber-driven, high-speed Internet, digital cable and telephone technology, as well as experience our company-wide focus on exceptional customer service.”
