WASHINGTON August 11, 2010- The Alabama town of Opelika has decided to set up its own cable television and internet network.

The town voted in a referendum aimed at providing some competition to Charter Communications; the town’s only ISP.

“We all worked very hard on this,” Mayor Gary Fuller said. “We heard the cry of our citizens about competition for Charter and know the importance of this to economic development that this fiber and high speed Internet will provide as well as the value of improving our existing smart grid system.”

The council will now setup a bid outline for the project.
