Anniston Fiber Optics

Anniston Fiber Optics, Inc. is a non-profit that was established to provide educational technology improvement for at risk students by providing broadband access via fiber optic facilities in the east Alabama region.

The twenty six mile network includes all six of the Anniston City Schools, three county schools, Gadsden State Community College, Coosa Valley Juvenile Services complex, Calhoun County Sheriff Department and the Calhoun County Courthouse. The project is part of an effort across Calhoun County to link all schools together through distance learning technology, and extend the virtual connection to Jacksonville State and Gadsden State Community College.  The fiber-optic system allows instruction of classes at schools that might not have a teacher in a subject available at other schools.
