Grants Given for Increased Broadband Access
AP Monday January 29, 2018

The state of Tennessee is giving nearly $10 million in grants to help utilities, phone cooperatives and cable TV companies extend high-speed internet service to parts of 13 counties.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that the grants announced Friday will be matched by internet providers to create nearly $20 million of additional broadband investment in rural counties.
However, the 5,000 households that the grants will help are barely more than 1 percent of the roughly 422,000 households that don't have access to landline internet speeds that meet the federal benchmark for high speed broadband.
The grants also funded only a fraction of the $66 million in requests received from 71 utilities, communications companies and co-ops that sought funding under the Tennessee Broadband Accessibility Act adopted last year.
