Gibson EMC Awarded Broadband Grant

Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam has announced that Gibson Electric Membership Corporation has been awarded a grant for $1,353,148.14 through the State’s Broadband Accessibility Grant Program. Gibson EMC applied for three broadband grants on behalf of its membership and one was awarded.  The grant awarded by the State of Tennessee will help Gibson EMC build broadband infrastructure to make high-speed, fiber-based internet service available to parts of Lake and Obion Counties.

“We appreciate that Governor Haslam and our legislators have recognized the critical need for broadband accessibility in our state’s rural areas and have taken steps to help make providing this service possible,” said Dan Rodamaker, President and CEO for Gibson Electric Membership Corporation and Gibson Connect.  “Through this grant, the State is helping us to make high-speed, fiber-based internet service a reality for parts of Lake and Obion counties,” Rodamaker said.  “This is outstanding news for these counties and it moves us a step closer to our ultimate goal of making this essential service available to all of our members.”
