ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany City commissioners give the go-ahead to negotiate a deal with a new cable provider.  Albany Telecommunications Company L2-Networks already offers telephone services for small businesses.

They hope to bring you TV entertainment as well through fiber-optic technology that's already in place through Water, Gas, and Light. They asked the city commission for a franchise agreement. Commissioners gave the city manager permission to begin negotiations.

"My constituents are delighted too," said City Commissioner Dorothy Hubbard. "I've had several calls from people asking me to vote for it. What we are concerned about is how soon? How long is it going to take? Whether the services will be greater and cost less."

"The video franchise agreement would basically allow us to offer video services, or the equivalent of cable TV in this market and surrounding territories," Kraig Beahn of L2Networks said.

Once a franchise agreement is worked out, the company hopes to offer service to the first paying customer in six months. Right now, Mediacom is the only cable option in the city.
