Gibson EMC Begins Work on Broadband

On April 24 Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam signed the Tennessee Broadband Accessibility Act which creates grant funding and allows private, not-for-profit, member-owned and member-controlled electric cooperatives to provide high-speed internet service to co-op members. 

With the passage of this Act, Tennessee’s rural electric cooperatives can finally help bridge the digital divide for our rural areas. We sincerely appreciate Governor Bill Haslam’s and our legislators’ support of this Act and we are excited about the opportunity it gives us to improve our members’ quality of life.

Gibson EMC’s next step is to evaluate how our cooperative can create a sustainable business plan for providing broadband to our members who desire it. It will be a significant undertaking that will require careful planning and execution. We already are working on this important project and will keep our members informed of our progress. Watch for updates on this website, in the magazine, on our Gibson EMC Facebook page and through the Gibson EMC Twitter feed.
