The city of Opelika may soon have the fiber-optic network they have the last couple of years investing in.
Opelika Power Services is currently testing various aspects of the network and are hopeful for a launch date sometime in the late spring or early summer. According to June Owens, manager of customer support at OPS, the release date will be largely dependent on what is found during the testing phase, specifically with cable and video capabilities. The network is termed as a triple-play system, which will utilize internet access, telephone service and cable.
