Trenton Telephone/TVN announced on Thursday that it has completed fiber optic infrastructure on Highway 301 North atop Sand Mountain starting at White Oak Baptist Church and going north as far as the Alabama line. The company is now accepting applications for fiber optic internet and television service in the following areas:
Wright Road, Wells Road, Bunt Road, Winding Lane, Beaver Drive, Casey Road, Holland Road, Ellis Road, Davis School Road and Hughes Road; most of Hartline Road; and parts of Saddle Club and Stanley Roads.
After TVN rolls out its new 1-gig-per-second internet service in August—no date has yet been announced—households in the above neighborhoods will have access to fast internet from a base speed of 60 megs all the way up to the 1 gig, depending on the price package they choose.
The current standard is 30 gigs, and current TVN customers in areas where fiber optics are already in place will see their speed double at no additional cost. TVN has not yet unveiled its price structure for the higher-speed packages.
To apply for internet or TV service, or for more information, readers may contact the telephone company at (423) 657-4367.
