Tennessee: JEA to move from FTTH trial to full deployment in late April

Jackson, Tennessee -- "Glass fibers the width of a strand of human hair will soon pipe cable, Internet and phone lines into Jackson homes. The Jackson Energy Authority's E-Plus for Broadband program was the main topic of conversation at the company's board and management's presentation Monday night. JEA President John Williams shared the company's five-year plan to the City Council and the public."

"Williams is most excited about the fiber-optic broadband network, he said. A total of 174 JEA customers in the Channing Way area and in East Jackson are currently using the service. If those trial customers do not experience any glitches, the program will launch on April 27, Williams said. Plans include offering the service in northwest, central, east and south Jackson."
