About Us

In some parts of Alabama, getting reliable access to a broadband service is nearly impossible. The best option is usually satellite, but in spite of the high cost, this usually comes with limited data and poor reliability—especially when the weather gets bad. All of these problems are frustrating enough on a good day, but what about when you need to work from home, or your kids need to do remote learning? Suddenly, the inconvenience of a poor internet connection becomes a full-on nightmare. It doesn’t have to be this way. Buzz Broadband is coming to your neighborhood!

Buzz Broadband is a wholly owned subsidiary of Covington Electric Cooperative created to benefit the membership, the cooperative, and the electric grid. At CEC, we have more than 75 years of experience serving the communities in our area, and that same experience will be behind our new venture as we roll out broadband service to our members. We look forward to helping the people of our community access the internet more effectively.

Why Buzz Broadband?

  • Buzz Broadband is a fiber-based broadband service that brings the highest available broadband speeds at competitive prices to CEC members. Having fast and reliable access to such technology takes the sting out of meeting deadlines, virtual learning, working from home and running a business.

    Because of the impact of high-speed internet on business, education and overall quality of life, providing broadband service will play an integral role in our region’s growth. We believe this service will provide CEC members with the sweetest online experience.

    Reliable and affordable access to fiber-based broadband has been limited for those who live in rural areas. CEC is pleased to help provide a solution that is truly BUZZworthy.
