Here is where we get ‘down’-n-‘ dirty
What follows is a really ‘down to earth’ condensed review (Pro and Con) of all the various internet delivery methods, Brand of the ISP and whether this service is available in the East Tennessee area.
Yep, I get to talk about all of ’em having worked for most of them in one form or another over the years.
What this means to you is you will have enough info in one place to make your decision of which ISP you really want/need.
Maybe you have seen one of our signs
Not all Internet providers (ISP) offer an equal product and here are the important points
- Is it fast (both down and up ) speeds are very important now!
- What is the typical advertised price and what is included.
- What is true cost , is there a contract period and will the price change.(ie more data)
- Is there a data limit
- Does the ISP ‘throttle’ the service and if so, when?
- Do they fix it if its broken?(ie warranty or service truck roll ,who bears that cost and how easy is it to get service)

Electric Power Board (in this instance-Chattanooga TN). This is a very interesting system that has quietly been running fiber everywhere within its turf. More info to come on this but as it stands , is the fastest system available to the public and at very reasonable rates.
