In late 2018, CAEC’s Board of Trustees approved Phase I of a plan to construct a fiber network for broadband. The first goal for this project is to construct a 400-mile fiber optic ring, connecting our 24 electric substations and six offices, so this first phase will follow that path. Construction started Aug. 5.

You can now verify whether or not your address will be a part of this first phase by entering your address above. As the process moves forward we will begin building out to those members who are in the Phase I area and who have already indicated an interest in service by paying the $25 commitment fee. 

As a reminder, please know that our secondary goal is to be able to provide high speed internet to everyone in our territory who wants the service, which will take time to accomplish. Whether your home falls in the Phase I area or not, please continue to encourage your friends and neighbors to indicate their desire for service by committing here at www.centralaccess.coop. This will prove vital as the project enters additional phases.

CAEC Broadband Access Project

Central Alabama Electric Cooperative is a not-for-profit, member-owned electric distribution utility serving more than 42,000 meters in a 10-county area of central Alabama just north of Montgomery. 

As members of an electric co-op, many of us live and work in rural areas. These communities are filled with beauty and natural resources unlike anywhere else--but we can find ourselves lacking a desirable technology: high-speed internet, also known as broadband.
