MTE in partnership with United Communications is working to attract Federal and State grants to help serve areas of our territory. Unfortunately, the data the government relies on to allocate funding is not adequate. This survey helps provide more information to determine where future funding can be allocated.

Middle Tennessee Electric currently serves Cannon, Rutherford, Williamson, and Wilson counties. United serves Bedford, Franklin, Marshall, Rutherford, and Williamson counties. The partnership will focus on serving Middle Tennessee Electric members while United continues expansion projects in its existing service area. MTE's footprint includes over 14,000 miles of electric distribution lines- duplicating that much infrastructure for broadband will be a multi-year process.
Full implementation will be a multi-year process. For many residents and businesses, broadband service may already be available. You can check current service availability here: https://service.united.net.
If service is not yet available in your area, you may register to express interest in broadband and request updates on future expansion plans. Community input and site registrations are an important factor in prioritizing new broadband expansion areas.
MTE encourages you to take the broadband survey to assist in having accurate data to plan further expansion and apply for grand assistance in this monumental endeavor.

Broadband is, quite simply, high-speed internet access. Broadband can be delivered over multiple technologies, including fiber, cable, and fixed wireless. The official Federal Communications Commission (FCC) definition of broadband is a minimum of 25 Mbps (megabits per second) download and 3 Mbps upload.
High-speed internet has revolutionized how we use technology in our homes and businesses. Imagine chatting with your doctors and teachers via video conference or collaborating on a work or school project with people across the country in real time. Faster speeds mean more possibilities for our residents, local businesses, and communities.
Now more than ever the demands for broadband are ever increasing.
United currently offers internet speeds to residential customers from 25 Mbps up to 1 Gbps (1 Gig), starting as low as $65/month (plus applicable fees and taxes). Check united.net for the latest offers and promotions.
Yes. United offers customized business Internet solutions to fit the needs of any size business with speeds of up to 10 Gbps. For information on our business offerings, please visit www.united.net/business.

We are working diligently to identify areas in the Middle Tennessee Electric service area where new infrastructure can be deployed within the next year; however, the full project scope and implementation will be a multi-year process.

No. Broadband will require new infrastructure such as fiber optic and fixed wireless technologies. United will leverage our existing fiber infrastructure in the areas we already serve to accelerate broadband expansion in the Middle Tennessee area.
No. This partnership will not affect Middle Tennessee Electric’s electricity rates. The rates MTEMC members pay for residential service rank among the lowest in the nation...in fact, MTEMC's residential rate is about 25 percent below the national average.
United will continue to expand high-speed Internet services to existing customers. This partnership will allow United to accelerate fiber expansion plans in the coming years. Please let us know you're interested in broadband by completing this survey:
Yes. We believe the key to expanding broadband access to underserved areas will be to partner with other local and regional companies.
