Chattanooga, TN, USA, October 15, 2015
Chattanooga, known as “Gig City” for being the first in the United States to build a community-wide fiber optic network capable of delivering 1 gigabit (1,000 Mbps) Internet speeds, announced today that municipal utility EPB Fiber Optics is now offering the world’s first 10 gigabit (10 Gig) Internet service to be made available across a large community-wide territory. Unlike point-to-point commercial installations, which have been possible for some time, EPB’s 10 Gig service is now available for access by every home and business in a 600 square mile area through Alcatel-Lucent’s TWDM-PON broadband technology.
