Dr. Aaron McCall, interim executive director of the South Central Alabama Broadband Commission, confirmed that the National Telecommunications and Information Administration had terminated the grant that had been awarded to Trillion Communication Corporation for the project, which was to span seven counties, including Butler and Lowndes counties.
Trillion Communications was awarded $59 million in grant money by the NTIA to fund the project. The remaining $27 million was to come from private investors. "We finally heard from NTIA and they terminated the Trillion grant and SCABC is trying to rescue the grant and have it re-granted to the SCABC," McCall said. McCall said that SCABC is also seeking private funds to continue with the project.

Dr. Aaron McCall, executive program manager for the South Central Alabama Broadband Commission, said Trillion Communications has until March 9 to lay 2,200 miles of fiber optic cable infrastructure.
Trillion Communications is the grant recipient for the project funded by $59 million in National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) grant funds and $27 million from private investors. The project is designed to provide fiber optic cable infrastructure in Butler, Crenshaw, Conecuh, Dallas, Escambia, Lowndes, Macon and Wilcox counties. McCall said the project is "under agency review because we are behind schedule." He said in August of this year, 67 percent of the project is supposed to be done. He said this is a 36-month shovel ready project, which is supposed to be up and running by Aug. 13, 2013. However, McCall said, less than 1 percent of the work has been done, including 29 miles of cable in Crenshaw County, laid by Troy Cable, and 20 miles of conduit in Lowndes County, laid by A2D. McCall said the government gave a "stop work" order "until they could evaluate whether those who are doing the construction (A2D) can bring the project in on time." McCall said the reason the project is behind is because there are a lot of challenges with an ambitious project covering eight counties and 37 municipalities. He said there were problems with an environmental report that threw the project behind. And he said there were problems getting permits. "We have out of state companies that are doing this work, and unfortunately they are not quite as familiar with doing business in Alabama," said McCall. He said, "They had hiccups and some stumbles along the way and were not able to get the proper permitting and those kinds of things that needed to have been done before the construction began and continued." McCall said A2D, the company responsible for the engineering and construction, is receptive to input from the SCABC and he is "cautiously comfortable" that the project can come in on time. Lowndes County is in phase one of the broadband project along with Dallas County, said McCall. He said the project would provide cities, towns and counties high speed Internet; businesses will have the ability to conduct businesses globally; and schools will be able to offer online courses. While McCall said there is the state run distance learning program, the problem is after students leave school they don't have access to computers in their homes. He said last mile of the broadband project would allow students to access computers in their homes.
