Hammer Fiber To Offer Internet Services in Alabama

Hammer announced today that its subsidiary, 1stPoint Communications, will resume offering internet services in Huntsville, Homewood and Birmingham, Alabama.

This is a significant milestone in the deployment of Hammer’s “Everything Wireless” strategy. In July 2018 1stPoint acquired the assets of Hiwaay Information Services. Hiwaay had supplied internet access to enterprise, small business and residential customers through dial-up and DSL before discontinuing the services in 2016 and 2017. 1stPoint had acquired the remaining web hosting and enterprise internet access business as well as Hiwaay’s Homewood edge colocation facility.

Building on the strong brand recognition, Hammer will begin deploying wireless residential customers in partnership with other operators until it can expand its own network infrastructure in the market.

Hammer will focus on the delivery of residential and small businesses in Huntsville, while concentrating on business and enterprise services in Birmingham and Homewood, where it continues to maintain its edge data center.
