Albany's new cable provider will be testing its product at as many as a dozen homes this week. The L-2 network plans to provide TV, Internet, and phone service using Albany Water, Gas and Light's fiber optics.

For the last several months they've constructed and installed their network in the Lake Park area in northwest Albany. On Friday they'll turn the service on for nearly a dozen homes in that area to make sure it's working properly.

"They plan to test starting at the end of this week, April 15th is when I was told and they have selected approximately 10 to 15 houses in the Lake Park area, turn them on work on the bug a little bit , make sure it's working then it's off to the races," said Wes Smith, Albany Assistant City Manager.

If all goes well they'll continue rolling out service to the entire city. It's expected to take two years, for the entire city to be hooked up. Customers with the service will be able to access the Internet straight from their televisions and explore web sites like Twitter and facebook at High speeds.
