Alabama: City of Greensboro will deploy Fiber to the Home (FTTH) system

"U.S. Rep. Artur Davis led a tour of Alabama's impoverished Black Belt looking not for economic ills but successful programs that are helping to improve the area. 'The goal today is optimism,' Davis said."

"One of the projects ... was the John E. Owens Educational and Technical Center in the Hale County city of Greensboro. 'While we understand everything that isn't working in Hale County, we want to show him something that is working,' Davis said. The city of Greensboro opened the education center last year. The lab includes nearly 20 computers, with modems, and offers tutoring for students seven days a week."

"Greensboro is also working to bring fiber optics into every home in the city. Next year, the city plans to begin offering digital cable, telephone service and cable modem service by putting one fiber optic cable into each home."

"Davis said detractors have told him that telecommunications would not work in Hale County. 'The spirit of the Black Belt has to overcome that type of thinking,' he said."
