When Alpha Technologies recently announced a program to assist local communities and municipalities interested in the development of broadband networks, the City of St. Albans was quick to respond.
St. Albans had previously announced that the city was gathering information about creating a network for their citizens. The city will now work directly with Alpha Technologies to learn more about the services that may be available and how to design the network to make services available to as many of their constituents as possible.
St. Albans Mayor Scott James said, “Before we spend any money building out the infrastructure for better broadband in St. Albans, we are going to educate ourselves on all technologies and options to better serve our constituents.”
Alpha provides necessary engineering assistance at no charge to help local communities review all possibilities of internet services.
“As local communities begin to invest in broadband infrastructure, we are providing engineering and educational resources at no charge to help the communities make informed decisions as they move forward with broadband deployment,” said CEO, Doug Tate.
Alpha Technologies recently completed a fiber network buildout in Charleston and South Charleston that extends to the Alpha Technolgies global datacenter in South Charleston. Alpha was also recently selected by the US Geological Survey as a contractor to provide Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) support.
Alpha Technologies is a service-disabled veteran owned small business headquartered in Hurricane.
