United Communications is pleased to announce they have deployed fiber-to-the home technology to over 230 new homes in the rural areas of Marshall County, West and North of Chapel Hill, TN.  “This is just the first of many areas where we plan to deploy fiber services under our newly announced Middle Tennessee Connectivity Initiative,” said William Bradford, the CEO of United Communications.  “Expanding in Marshall County is exciting for us as it brings gigabit internet, digital TV, and crystal clear phone service to businesses and residents in the area, vaulting them ahead of the services that are available in many areas across greater metro Nashville today.”

The fiber expansion in Northwestern Marshall County includes over 140 homes in and around the Azalee Acres neighborhood, including Abigail Court, Alyssa Drive, Angela Way, Azalee Lane, Dean Road, and portions of Pyles Road (4307 through 4579) and Thick Road (4295 and through 4406). 

The fiber deployment in Northeastern Marshall County includes over 90 homes and businesses in the areas around Blackwell Road and Mount Vernon Road between 5707 and 5870 Nashville Highway, including Jason Drive, Sidney Road, Villa Way, and portions of Mt Vernon Road (2515 through 2710) and Blackwell Road (2473 through 2499).  The expansion will also include all new homes in the new Warner Ridge Estates neighborhood as well.

Haslam, TN Dept. of Tourist Development Announce Another Record-Breaking Year of Economic Impact Numbers

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Department of Tourist Development Commissioner Kevin Triplett today announced Tennessee tourism’s direct domestic and international travel expenditures reached an all-time high of $18.4 billion in 2015, up 3.7 percent over the previous year, as reported by the U.S. Travel Association. The announcement took place at the Sevier County Courthouse near the iconic Dolly Parton statue. Mountain Rukus from Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede provided music. 

For the 10th consecutive year, tourism topped $1 billion in state and local sales tax revenue, reaching $1.6 billion, up 7 percent over 2014. Tourism-generated jobs for Tennesseans reached 157,400, an increase of 2.9 percent. 

Top five counties include Davidson ($5.686 billion), Shelby ($3.196 billion), Sevier ($2.031 billion), Hamilton ($1.016 billion), and Knox ($1.014 billion), who were acknowledged during the event for all achieving more than $1 billion in travel expenditures. All 95 counties in Tennessee had more than $1 million in direct travel expenditures; 19 counties saw more than $100 million each. 

Tennessee is ranked in the Top 10 destinations in the U.S. for total travel, with more than 105 million in total visitation, a 3.9% increase over 2014, as reported by D.K. Shifflet & Associates. 

Guests spent a total of $21.98 million in Marshall County in 2015, an increase of 1.9% compared to 2014, generating a total of $1.35 million in state and $0.59 million in local tax revenues, increases of 7.1% and 4.3%, respectively. A total of 147 Marshall Countians are employed in tourism-related fields. 

“The hard work of Tennessee’s tourism industry, strategically led by the Department of Tourist Development and the Tennessee Tourism Committee, continues to produce record results,” Gov. Haslam said. “More travelers from around the world are visiting Tennessee each year, and the $1.6 billion in sales tax revenue and growth in jobs is good news for every Tennessean.” 

“It’s appropriate that today’s announcement takes place next to a statue of Sevier County’s own Dolly Parton, who graces the cover of this year’s Tennessee Vacation Guide,” said Commissioner Triplett. “Dolly’s music has played a major role in making Tennessee ‘The Soundtrack of America.’ People come to Tennessee for a variety of reasons including the music, but it’s the authenticity and Southern hospitality that our communities and partners deliver every day that keeps people coming back. The tourism industry’s continued economic impact growth is a result of visitor satisfaction.” 

The Tennessee Tourism Committee, appointed in 2011 by Gov. Haslam, is made up of tourism leaders in both the public and private sectors. The Committee is chaired by Colin Reed, Ryman Hospitality Properties, Inc., and co-chaired by Jack Soden, Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc., and Sande Weiss, president of Music Road Resort.

United Communications has recently partnered with the Town of Chapel Hill and the Henry Horton State Park to bring new fiber technology to the popular local park. “This was a very rewarding project for us,” said William Bradford, the CEO of United Communications.  “It was clear that the Town of Chapel Hill Administrator and the Henry Horton Park Manager all shared United Communications’ vision to stimulate local economic development through the power of technology.  Henry Horton State Park is one of Marshall County’s critical community anchors we have recently upgraded to Gigabit Fiber Internet under our newly established Middle Tennessee Connectivity Initiative.”

In order to make this vision a reality, United Communications contributed over $5,000 in materials and resources and the Town of Chapel Hill allocated another $5,000 in order to build out new fiber connections to Henry Horton State Park.  “We believe local government and business partnerships like this are critical to driving broadband deployment and economic development in rural areas and economic development,” said Bradford.

“The addition of Fiber Internet and Wi-Fi throughout the park’s Inn will enable us to host more events and attract more visitors to the park who need high-speed internet as part of their stay,” said Park Manager Ryan Jenkins. “We hope this upgraded technology will set Henry Horton State Park apart from other regional locations and help grow our business tourism base.”

The Chapel Hill Town Administrator remarked “Since the day I was hired, we set out to leverage local resources to improve the quality of life for Chapel Hill residents, as well as attract new residents, businesses, and visitors.   The proximity of Chapel Hill to Nashville, Spring Hill, Shelbyville, and Lewisburg along with the attractions of the Henry Horton State Park and United Communications new fiber technology are critical factors to spurring economic growth in small towns like ours across America. We certainly hope this is just the first of many projects like this in our area.”   

The first ever Middle Tennessee Connectivity Summit will be held at the Henry Horton State Park where United, in partnership with local community and business leaders will discuss ways to enhance their partnerships and speed the delivery of fiber internet in the region.
