Connected Tennessee Needs Your Help

Connected Tennessee is calling on Tennessee communities to assist with creating a more accurate picture of broadband availability in Tennessee, and to provide feedback on the maps, especially if a discrepancy in broadband coverage is noticed. The input from consumers will be used to ultimately increase private investment into unserved and underserved areas by broadband providers.

Citizens are asked to go to , click on the blue pushpin, and enter their address. A list of broadband providers will be shown. If the resident believes the list is incorrect or service is being reported in an area where none exists, they can share the results using Connected Tennessee’s online form at: .
