BGMU closer to Telecommunications Business

By Katie Weber | 

Bowling Green Municipal Utilities is a step closer to getting into the Telecommunications Business.

BGMU decided to have Jackson Energy Authority determine whether or not it would be possible to build a new fiber optic network to homes in Bowling Green.

According to BGMU, they decided to go with the company out of Jackson, Tennessee because it has been through a similar feasibility study in the past.

If BGMU built a fiber optic network to reach every home in their service area, it would be capable of handling about 25 times more data then a current cable modem connection.

The City Commission won't see the results of the feasibility test until November.
