Chattanooga is the first city in the Western Hemisphere to offer one-gigabit-per-second fiber internet service to all residents and businesses. At 200 times the speed of the national average, the Gig opens the door to unimagined ways of learning, playing and conducting business.
The fiber network that permits Gig service was installed by Chattanooga's publicly owned electric power system, EPB, to support the most advanced smart grid system in the nation. The smart grid is the first killer app for Chattanooga's Gig network, but it’s just one of many that the community plans to deploy as we continue to take advantage of the Gig.
The Gig City’s efforts to explore the future of hyper-fast Internet applications are made possible through the generous support of dozens of organizations within the community of Chattanooga and the community of the Internet.
