The Tennessee Valley Authority Announces $300 Million Fiber Network Expansion

The Tennessee Valley Authority board of directors on May 18, 2017, approved a $300 million expansion of its fiber optic network, lending a potential boost to the region's efforts at expanding broadband access. Over the next five to 10 years officials plan to install or upgrade 3,500 miles of fiber throughout the vast TVA network, which reaches seven states in the Southeast. The primary purpose for the expansion, officials said, is to bolster the telecommunications system behind the operation of TVA power plants and other parts of the grid. From homes with solar installations to data-driven power supply management, the utility industry is relying more on high-speed broadband than ever before. TVA also plans to build more fiber than it needs, so some may be available to homes and businesses.
