BROADBAND - WHAT DO WE DO NOW?
Gov. Bill Haslam on Tuesday, May 16, participated in a ceremonial signing of the Tennessee Broadband Accessibility Act, legislation that will expand broadband access in rural Tennessee by allowing electric cooperatives to provide retail service to co-op members.
STEMC has commissioned a study by a consulting firm with expertise in broadband.
The timeline for completion of the study is 3 months.
After the study, STEMC management will evaluate the results and make a recommendation to your Board on what we should do in the broadband market.
To bring broadband to homes will take millions of dollars in investment so it is a huge undertaking.
