HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Adtran, Inc., the leading provider of next-generation multi-gigabit fiber access and fiber extension solutions, today announced that Volt Broadband is leveraging Adtran’s end-to-end fiber broadband solution to launch fiber broadband services and close the digital divide in rural Louisiana.
Volt Broadband is an internet service provider (ISP) and a subsidiary of Northeast Louisiana Power Cooperative. The ISP is a Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) recipient and is leveraging the funding to satisfy the need for connectivity in a region where most rural communities have been severely underserved until now.
“We’re committed to delivering reliable, affordable high-speed internet connections that will eliminate the digital equity gap here in Louisiana. To accomplish this, we need solutions that are reliable and easy to work with, which led us to Adtran,” said Jeff Churchwell, General Manager at Volt Broadband. “Our fiber network will improve everything for our communities, and we’re excited about the many opportunities this will create. Once completed, this project will enable the people who live on 40 acres, 10 miles away from town to have better internet service than people that live on Main Street. From education and streaming entertainment to telemedicine and farming, the Internet of Things has come to Northeast Louisiana.”
Volt Broadband’s network includes 2,000 fiber miles and passes 11,500 homes. The ISP connected its first customer in September 2022. Currently, Volt Broadband offers its residential customers broadband speeds up to a Gigabit while businesses can purchase multi-gigabit services. The r

Adtran delivers the flexibility and scalability needed to enable AW Broadband to connect underserved communities, unlock a future-ready fiber network and attract new economic opportunities to the Texas Panhandle.

AW Broadband was created, and it received funding through the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) to build its fiber network in Texas.
“In order to build the best network for us and our customers, we needed someone with scalable, high-performance solutions and we found that with Adtran. Other broadband access platforms on the market are limiting. Adtran offers reliability, flexibility and premium customer support whenever we need guidance,” said Matthew Carpenter, President and Co-Owner at AW Broadband. “With Adtran in our network, we are building a future-ready fiber network that will easily grow as capacity demands increase. We already have plans to expand our network footprint soon, and Adtran makes it easy to light up fiber in every direction.”
