In an 8-0 vote, Knoxville City Council gave the okay for KUB to "provide a public fiber broadband network (1-gigabit, symmetrical fiber) to its customers."
"According to KUB's proposal, service would start at about $65 a month and could begin as early as 2022. Service would extend to all of KUB's territory by 2029."

Over 3 years KUB electric bills will increase by about $10 to pay for broadband and improvements.

In partner with City of Knoxville, KUB is "exploring offering broadband access for lower income homes that might not be able to afford the service."

"The plan is inspired by Chattanooga's municipal broadband system, touted as one of the fastest and most reliable broadband networks in America."

County Mayor Glenn "Jacob's spokesperson Mike Donila told Knox News that Jacobs believed that KUB was a good community partner but that they should not be in broadband. "
