Knoxville Utility Board celebrates fiber internet expansion

KUB expansion unplugging ceremony

More than 4,100 South Knoxville homes and business have been connected to new fiber internet services after the Knoxville Utilities Board most recent expansion. Officials including Mayor Indya Kincannon, Knoxville City Councilmember Tommy Smith, and KUB President and CEO Gabriel J. Bolas II celebrated the new connection, which provides access to many citizens who were previously not able to access the faster speeds provided by fiber. This expansion is part of a more than $700 million project expected to take seven years for KUB to complete. The first phase of the expansion project is expected to be complete in the fall of 2023.
