Level 3 EON, LLC

Expanding Broadband Access Across Tennessee

The Expanding Broadband Access Across Tennessee project proposes to build four new access points on Level 3’s existing broadband network to enable last mile providers to offer affordable high-speed services to underserved areas. The additional points of interconnection will offer broadband speeds between 50 Mbps and 10 Gbps on an open and nondiscriminatory basis to last mile Internet service providers. Similar to on-ramps to the interstate highway system, these points of interconnection will enable last mile providers to transport data to the Internet backbone and provide affordable service to anchor institutions, homes, and businesses. The project could enhance broadband capabilities for as many as 188,000 households, 9,600 businesses, and 150 community anchor institutions, including schools, government agencies, and healthcare providers.
