ATC Broadband Serves Eight Counties in Southeast Georgia
ATC Broadband is the leading provider of communication services to Bacon, Appling, Pierce, Ware, Wayne, Coffee, Toombs and Emanuel counties. We offer a wide variety of products and services to residential and business customers including high-speed Internet, cable television, voice, fiber optics and IP phone systems.
History of Firsts
We have a long history of firsts in our area. In the early 1980s, ATC (Alma Telephone Company) was one of the first telephone companies in the state of Georgia to install a digital switch. In 1998, ATC participated in the construction of the USCarrier fiber network. ATC constructed fiber in Southeast Georgia through Coffee, Bacon, Ware and Pierce counties. This network connected our cities to a regional backbone from Atlanta to Miami and created an opportunity for people in Southeast Georgia to have access to high-speed communication services at competitive prices.
When other providers were still using conventional circuits for connecting data networks, ATC was first in the area to build fiber networks to each school system. Starting with Bacon County School System, ATC built fiber to each school and interconnected those using Gigabit Ethernet transmitters. Building on our experiences, we went on to build Pierce, Wayne, Coffee, and Ware school systems. We now serve both voice and data needs at each of those systems.
ATC Adds Value to Community Cable Systems
In September of 2004, ATC purchased the Baxley and Blackshear Cable systems. We upgraded the systems and began to offer voice services in July of 2006. ATC provides an alternative to the big local phone company in Baxley and Blackshear and now has over 2,000 phone customers in those areas.
ATC was among the first to bring High Definition television to Southeast Georgia. We built a tower site in downtown Jacksonville and transported the local broadcast stations back to our headend in Alma. ATC now provides both Savannah and Jacksonville local channels in High Definition.
We are dedicated to providing you with more options and better customer service than ever before. Since the beginning of telephone communication with ATC over 70 years ago, to the vast array of communications options available today, ATC has remained true to our goal of providing superior local customer service while also keeping our vision on the future enhancements of our community. ATC continues to offer technology that creates new ways to make connections.
