Right across the state line, City of Chattanooga-owned utility EPB will now be offering 10 gigabit per second service, branded as NextNet. That makes EPB one of the first public utilities in the world to offer 10 gigabit service to customers for only $299 per month.

The Chattanoogan has greater detail about the announcement, but it’s a major feather in the cap of Chattanooga which has been trying to expand beyond its industrial roots by wooing tech start-ups.
The announcement comes only a few months after Comcast announcing their own 2+ gigabit service to the Chattanooga-area and other major metropolitan areas. EPB has certainly caught the attention of Comcast (the local cable provider) and AT&T. This affects Georgia as well as some of us are within EPB’s service area.
Full disclosure: I am an EPB Fi customer, but I’m not currently planning on getting the 10 Gbps service.
