We start with "yes"

Using our community-wide 100% fiber optic infrastructure, we deliver unparalleled services from America’s most resilient smart grid to the world’s fastest internet service up to 25 Gigs. We reinforced that commitment by launching EPB Quantum Network in 2022, America’s first industry-led, commercially available quantum network designed for private companies as well as government and university researchers to run quantum equipment and applications in an established fiber optic environment. When it comes to big ideas, innovative technology, and life-improving services, EPB is your “anything-is-possible” energy and connectivity solutions provider. Our ever-evolving infrastructure empowers people, businesses, and homes to perform at the highest levels and illuminate the possibilities of tomorrow.

Helping Chattanooga schools

Our history

In 1939, we served our first customer with electricity and began a more than 80-year mission to enhance the quality of life for our community. As our infrastructure grew and changed over the decades, we soon realized that we could give local homes, schools, and businesses better access to communications technology. So in keeping with our mission of service, we created the first community-wide fiber optic network.

In 2010, we began offering every home and business in our service area access to gigabit-speed internet (1,000 Mbps). Chattanooga became famous throughout the nation as “Gig City®” attracting tech companies, startups, and entrepreneurs. The result? A high-tech town with a booming economy.

Most recently, EPB launched the nation’s first community-wide 25 gigabits per second (25,000 Mbps) internet service to be available to all residential and commercial customers over a 100% fiber optic network with symmetrical upload and download speeds.

Times have certainly changed in our more than 80-year history, but our mission has remained the same. To this day, we constantly seek ways to improve our services and create new products to meet our customers’ needs and help them thrive in our fast, everchanging modern world.
