SPRINGFIELD FL — Commissioners Friday unanimously agreed to give Mayor Ralph Hammond authority to finalize paperwork selling the city-owned Springfield Cable Television to FiberCast Cable. Representatives of FiberCast say little will change for cable customers, including the price. Channel arrangements could vary, but customers should not expect a gap in service, according to FiberCast president Gent Cav.
FiberCast’s priority is to have Internet available to compete with Comcast, the city’s sole provider of the service, and Cav said customers mostly will see upgrades in service, adding, “Now how long that takes … ideally, two months. … worst case scenario, six to eight months.”
FiberCast will bring in technicians to either replace the city’s interval transmitters or add equipment to the transmitters. Every other aspect of the city’s infrastructure is capable of Internet service, Cav said, except the city’s system only allows one-way transmissions. For downloads and uploads, two-way transmissions must occur.
