United launches UniFi campaign to speed fiber deployment in Middle Tennessee
6:08PM December 19, 2016
United Communications is excited to announce the launch of a new interactive fiber campaign and website aimed at giving customers the ability to help determine when and where United will deploy fiber-to-the-home services in the future. To date, United has invested more than $90 million in their Middle Tennessee network and deployed fiber services to more than 5,000 locations across their Middle Tennessee service area. As a result, they can deliver high-speed Internet with speeds up to 1 GIGABIT (1,000 mbps), digital TV and crystal -clear phone services to residents across their mainly rural Middle Tennessee service area.
The ultimate goal of United's UniFi campaign is to identify the broadband needs of residents and businesses across the mid-state. The new United UniFi campaign website, gives residents and businesses the power to pre-register to express interest in United fiber service. All that is required is a name, address, and product or service selection. The site provides customers with an interactive map broken down into 3 distinct zones: existing fiber service locations, pre-engineered fiber areas that will require an established customer backer goal to begin fiber-to-the-home construction, and general areas of fiber interest under review for future fiber deployment. Once a customer is registered as a "UniFi backer" they have the ability to easily share the information with friends and neighbors who may be interested in signing up for United fiber services.
"We are extremely proud of what we have been able to accomplish in order to bring fiber Internet and faster speeds to customers over the last few years, and we believe this new UniFi fiber campaign is going to be a game changer for future fiber deployment in our service area, said United Communications President and CEO, William Bradford. "As a company who is literally in the trenches of broadband deployment, we know there is an extremely high demand for bandwidth across the state and we realize the need for broadband is only going to continue to grow. The next critical step to expanding broadband, is to give customers the power to express interest in new services and faster speeds, and then meet that demand head on. Simultaneously, while the company pushes fiber service deployment across the area, we will also continue to focus our efforts making faster Internet speeds an option where fiber service is not currently available today."
