Albany - The city is expected to complete a multi-million dollar fiber optic cable system by Friday. Water, Gas, and Light workers are stringing the last few miles of fiber optic cables this week. W,G& L spent more than two years installing the communication system, that will provide high speed Internet access and live interactive learning to schools, city and county buildings.

"The system is great for schools. A teacher can teach at one school and a classroom of students across town can watch live on a television thanks to the fiber optic system," said Ronnie Skates, WG&L.

29 Dougherty County schools are already using the system. WG&L hopes to one day provide other businesses and private homes access to the fiber optic system.
