Five County Broadband Interconnected Training Access

Frequently lacking high-speed broadband services like VoIP or videoconferencing that are available in more urban areas, community anchor institutions in this five-county region of north central Tennessee have been severely limited in their ability to provide critical services to residents. Local broadband provider OnWav proposes to build a new 127-mile microwave and WiMAX fixed wireless network offering middle mile speeds from 133 Mbps to as high as 400 Mbps in selected municipalities of the counties of Fentress, Pickett, Clay, Jackson and Overton. OnWav’s Five County Broadband Interconnected Training Access project also expects to bring service speeds of up to 10 Mbps to local anchor institutions, with free interactive public training facilities and discounted rates. The project proposes to erect three new towers to support both middle mile and last mile service, designed with the local mountainous topography and sparse population in mind.
