Fiber

Fiber is Coming to Sumner and Trousdale County Customers

Tri-County Fiber Communications, a subsidiary of Tri-County Electric, now has 347 miles of fiber in our service areas. In those miles of fiber, we are currently offering Fiber to the Home (FTTH) internet and telephone service to our member-owners in Sumner & Trousdale counties, not served by a rural telephone cooperative. We also provide all telecommunications services to Tri-County Electric’s eight offices and eighteen substations. Our initial build was a three-year project that is ahead of schedule and we are hoping to finish this year.

Internet

In internet terminology 1G can indicate two separate things: the speed in which you can access/share data or the amount of data you are allowed to access/share. Our packages for internet service are unlimited.  You will be capable of streaming video all month long with our 50/50 mbs package without the concern of exceeding your data package or being charged additional fees.

For example, other providers data packages at 1G increments, setting a cap or limit on the amount of data you can access/share. When you reach the limit, additional charges apply.

Remember, the speed and volume of data are two separate characteristics of internet service.
