About the Project


Deltacom was awarded a Federal grant funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. 

NTIA Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP)
Grant Award Number: NT10BIX5570034

Deltacom’s East Tennessee Middle Mile Fiber Broadband Project plans to deploy a 544-mile high-capacity fiber-optic broadband Internet network. More than 50 community anchor institutions in five Eastern Tennessee communities, from Chattanooga through Knoxville to Johnson City and Bristol, will be connected to the high-speed middle mile network. The project intends to offer speeds of up to 10gbps to higher education and healthcare institutions, and spur more affordable broadband Internet access for up to 34,000 households, 5,000 businesses, and 270 anchor institutions by allowing local Internet providers to connect to the project’s open network.  

The East Tennessee Middle Mile Fiber Broadband Project also plans to:

  Enhance healthcare delivery in the region by providing high-capacity broadband for  medical facilities and facilitate telemedicine, health record transfer, and
     distance learning.
  Promote economic development and job growth in the underserved areas that have limited access to high-capacity affordable broadband services.
  Add five new points of interconnection in counties designated as critically underserved.
