Map shows ready for service and I completed the ready to install email that was sent. No one can seem to give me a answer . Also when I log in this site says something went wrong when I try to access My dashboard. Sorry for troubling you with calls. Still checking other options for internet as I refuse to keep paying $85.99 to Centurylink for 10 Mbps and upload of 1Mbps. I had satellite before that was faster than that! Might be my only option?

Larry Pitts, There is no rental charge for the residential gateway provided or the ONT that is provided. You will no longer need a modem since this is a complete fiber network. We do offer a managed wireless service to provide increased wireless coverage to larger homes and businesses at a monthly cost if needed.

Hits the 100 mbps when direct connected to my network... 60 plus meg even with the wifi upstairs... Great service by the installer and the people who got the fiber to the house. I highly recommend this service for everyone that can get it. Thanks Tombigbee and Freedom Fiber...

Glad to be on Lovers Lane. Signed my paperwork last week electronically and spoke to them on phone yesterday about interior install. Great nice people. I think her name was Heather. Anyways, I was one of Southnets first customers in 1994. My dad was anyway. But I subscribed to 14.4kbps and I have lived a life of computers and made a living off of them on the side. I can tell you, even my family in Birmingham doesn't have anything like this. We are very fortunate. So don't complain about the speed of Tombigbee as the embark on this quest. Do we all see them out working daily?? YES. Do you imagine they are getting bombarded with calls? Yes. Just be thankful and be patient. Their goal was to serve rural NW Alabama so odds are if you see them in your area, eventually they will serve you. They did the west side of Lovers Lane first, then a month later or so did the east side. Thankful to hear a company around here doesn't care about stepping on anyone elses toes, but does something good for the people. We been needing something good for a while. Would love to disconnect my Alabama Power and convert to Tombigbee just because of this. Tombigbee is making leaps in the game, the game of helping us live better lives, Alabama Power isn't. Maybe one day we get to bundle our Fiber and power. Fingers Crossed

I live on State Hwy 253, and Freedom Fiber's Phase one is right across the highway from me on Rose Lane. Your service map shows F.F. going north on State Hwy 253 for about 2 miles from the main red light in Winfield, then turning N.E. away from 253 before coming back to 253 just north of me. Please come across 253 and then south toward Winfield, and I will get just as many homes to sign up as what you have east of 253 and north of county rd 61. I am ready to get rid of this party-line internet I have with my ISP.

I'm definitely ready to ditch my customer "high-speed internet provider" witch even if it was high speeds it isn't a stable connection so in the end I have to do my downloads 2-3 times so dial up would be faster and much cheaper. Considering I'm paying$60 a month for a 5Mb connection that never seems to be connected. To top it off I call just yesterday to see if someone would come and fix it was told they would be out before the end of business day witch turns out to be false. So come on freedom fiber I need this to happen sooner then later.

We are one mile from the Hamilton city limits with several houses on our road, and so far we are not included in the Freedom Fiber internet service. We hope this doesn't turn out the same as city and county water service. We've been promised water access for years on County Highway 138, but so far not a single drop despite county water being available far out beyond us. Hopefully faster internet will eventually make it to our road. Good to see our friend Susan Cobb signed up too. She has been pleading for better internet service for a long time!
