Bristol Tennessee goes fiber


With an anti-muni broadband wave sweeping the country, it is good to see that Bristol, a tiny town in Tennessee, is moving ahead with its fiber plans. The local utility, Bristol Tennessee Essential Services will offer broadband and cable tv to about 20,000 of its customers beginning later this year. The utility will extend fiber optic cables from electric substations to homes and businesses. Beta tests will begin in six weeks. Rest of the details are pretty sketchy.
