So EPB, the Chatanooga power (and now high speed Internet) utility, is now offering Internet speeds up up to 1Gbps over fiber optic connections to homes. (A U.S. record, far as I know.) If you ignore EPB “triple play” offerings of TV and telephony alongside Internet connectivity and just go for the Internet connection, your prices are these (I’ve rounded up from the posted prices):
- $58 for 30Mbps
- $70 for 50Mbps
- $140 for 100Mbps and $350 for 1Gbps.
Let’s assume you get one or more IP addresses with this, and no blocked ports. In other words, a full native Internet connection. Answer these:
- Does that make you think about moving there?
- If not, would you get it if you lived in Chatanooga?
- And if your answer to that is yes, how would you recommend EPB improve its offering, either in its deployment or its characterization in marketing?
