- Cable TV
Since 1957 ATMC has connected Brunswick County to the world. First with telephone service, then cable TV, wireless, and internet. As we mark our 65th year of service, your cooperative is becoming newer than ever. Our mission is to provide you with the very best high-speed internet. To do this, we’re beginning a multi-year $100 million project to upgrade all of our Brunswick County members to fiber optic delivered broadband. And as we evolve to bring you even better broadband, we’re changing our name to better reflect our future. ATMC is now FOCUS Broadband. And while our name is changing, our commitment to serving you with the very best customer service never will. “The change in our corporate name reflects who we are today as we expand to serve more areas and as broadband becomes our core service offering,” said Keith Holden, CEO. He added, “No matter how much growth we experience, our goal is to maintain the values we were founded on.” FOCUS Broadband will continue to operate as a cooperative in our original ILEC areas of Calabash, Ocean Isle Beach, Sunset Beach, Holden Beach, Boiling Spring Lakes and Shallotte.
