KUB Fiber Has Connected to Areas in South Knoxville

Posted: 08/07/2023
Mayor Indya Kincannon and others gathered to celebrate the expansion of KUB Fiber to more than 4,100 South Knoxville homes and businesses in this rapidly growing area of the city.

“The people of Knoxville are ready for KUB Fiber and the speedy and reliable internet it provides, especially since fast internet access is essential for education, healthcare, and services for so many,” Mayor Kincannon said. “Here in South Knoxville, some communities have not been able to access internet at these speeds. I am so excited to know that KUB Fiber will improve lives and assist continued business development.” 

Kincannon, with Knoxville City Councilmember Tommy Smith, and KUB President and CEO Gabriel J. Bolas II, celebrated the occasion on Monday next to the restaurant 71 South, a new KUB Fiber customer.

“We were very excited to hear that KUB was providing fiber to South Knoxville. From the start, KUB provided us with high quality customer service and reliable internet,” Matt Petro, the chef at 71 South, said. “We are very happy to be working with them for our business.”

KUB Fiber provides the fastest internet speeds. The expansion of KUB Fiber in South Knoxville includes areas east and west of Chapman Highway as far south as Young High Parkway. Homes and businesses are currently eligible for service in the communities of Vestal, Island Home, Old Sevier, Cherokee Trail, and others.

KUB Fiber is also available in East Knoxville neighborhoods like Parkridge and Morningside, in North Knoxville and along the Broadway corridor, in some West Knoxville service areas, and parts of in Union and Grainger counties. Continued expansion of KUB Fiber is underway.

“South Knoxville’s development has been underway for some time now, and as it continues to grow, we are excited to support new customers with high-speed internet, as well as TV and phone service,” Bolas said. “We look forward to building out our system so we can provide these essential services to all our electric customers.”
