Jackson, Tennessee, is pleased to join Next Century Cities. The proximity to I-40, major highways, and railways conveniently connects Jackson, Tennessee, to regional, national and global markets. The city of Jackson infrastructure also offers fiber lines that connect to the world via broadband. Our local utility provider, Jackson Energy Authority, built a fiber-to-home network ten years ago delivering broadband speeds to our city. This reliable high-speed data connection is important when it comes to attracting business and industry to our community.
Jackson Energy Authority is one of few public utilities in the United States offering customers all major utility services from one company. Residential, business and industry consumers in Jackson, Tennessee and parts of Madison County are served.
Jackson Energy Authority launched EPlus Broadband in 2004 and set out to build a unique community-owned fiber to the home broadband network to deliver an extraordinary level of service and value to customers. By understanding the goals of our community as it relates to economic growth, education, and quality of life, we have adapted and expanded the service. The next generation of broadband will ensure Jackson Energy Authority and the city of Jackson embraces and provides for the needs of our community.
