Albany, Ga. utility gives up on competitive cable TV service provider

The Albany (Ga.) Water, Gas and Light Commission has tabled its plans to be a local cable TV provider in partnership with L2Networks and will now go "in a different direction," the utility's general manager said.

The utility dumped L2 and its plans to implement residential broadband TV and Internet because its CEO Kraig Beahn is "just not fulfilling the promises he made with us and the commission," WG&L's general manager Lemuel Edwards said. "So on the residential side we've decided to look at other vendors and go in a different direction.

Beahn, in an e-mail to the Albany Herald abstained from discussing too much about the breakup because "certain aspects of the operations ... remain under non-disclosure." He did promise, however, "We are getting into the residential TV and Internet business."

Just not in partnership with WG&L.
