First Milestone

11:34am October 12, 2017

Hurray! Yesterday we reached our first Gibson Connect milestone when all of our 27 Gibson Connect zones showed participation levels.  We launched Gibson Connect at our first Gibson EMC Member Appreciation Event in Trenton. 

At this moment, our two Trenton zones are leading the pack; the Trenton South zone is already at 15% of its goal and the Trenton North zone is at 14%.  The Medina and Dyer zones are not far behind at 11% to goal. Next are the Newbern and Hornbeak zones at 8% to goal.  The Three Way, Rutherford and Gadsden zones come in at 5%.  We have a total of 625 supporters so far.  Thanks to all of you who are helping to spread the word!  Zone Champions rock!

Gibson Connect - Powered by Gibson EMC - Is Here!

9:42am September 8, 2017

Since 1936, Gibson Electric Membership Corporation has provided its members with the essential service of electricity.  Now, at your urging, we're taking steps to provide you with the essential service of high-speed internet connectivity.  Gibson Connect, LLC was formed in July 2017.  It is a not-for-profit, wholly owned subsidiary of Gibson EMC.   

What makes Gibson Connect different?  First, Gibson Connect is powered by the very same people you already know and trust.  For us, it's not about profit; it's about providing you with excellent service and supporting our communities.  Our goal is to ultimately provide all of our eligible* members access to a 100% fiber network.  This is exciting for our members and our communities because fiber offers many important benefits:

  • Reliable - It is less affected by weather than other sources.
  • Extremely Fast - It gives you access up to 1 Gig (1,000 megabits per second). That's 100 times faster than the national average.
  • No Buffering - With  our 1 Gig speed you can download a 2-hour HD movie in less than a minute or a 9-hour audiobook in less than a second.
  • Not Just Internet - Gibson Connect plans to provide telephone) and possibly TV/video (if there is enough interest) over the same connection.  Our telephone offering will operate the same as your local telephone service, but it will include unlimited long distance and advanced calling features. 

You and other members will drive our construction plans. If you want us to build fiber to your home or business, register today.  Encourage others - your friends, neighbors and community - to register too!  When a zone reaches the required participation level, our board of trustees will vote to approve the fiber build-out.  Zones that demonstrate the highest levels of interest by exceeding the required participation levels will earn priority. 

Gibson EMC has a proud history of providing power to the people of this area and we look forward to providing connectivity to the communities we know and love!

For more information, please check out our Frequently Asked Questions . 

*Tennessee law prevents Gibson Connect from serving Gibson EMC members within  the West Kentucky & Tennessee Telecommunications Cooperative service area (in Tennessee).

There is rumor going that it's your able to get internet through a cable company you cannot get service with Gibson connect. Anyone know if that's true or not or what the deal is? Live in North Trenton

Guys the best way to make this happen is for us who know how important this is of Obion County is to spread the word whether it is on Facebook, or face to face. I work for the Obion County School System as the IT Director, and I can't explain enough how import it is for the children of Obion County to have access to internet at home. Folks we have to face the facts of life. The internet is here to stay, and if we do not join the ride we are only hurting ourselves.

Marilyn, so glad you've signed up and Daniel was correct again. Once a zone reaches the required registration/participation level, our board will vote to move forward with engineering, ordering materials and construction. Unfortunately, we cannot provide a firm timeline. The answer is dependent on a number of variables like the number of miles of fiber that must be constructed within a zone and the number of zones currently under construction. We’re excited about providing this service, but we ask that our members keep in mind that delivering service over a 12-county area is a big job that may take several years to complete. Of course, as zones reach their participation requirements we will provide more specifics regarding timelines.

Daniel, in response to your question... our goal is to provide high-speed internet access to all of our eligible members, but we also want to be sure we do it in a way that is financially sound. Using our participation model, join.gibsonconnect.com, is a financially sound process that enables our members to drive our buildout and get access. This approach follows the cooperative principles of (1) democratic member control, economic participation and concern for community. Ultimately we hope to reach all our eligible members, but I'm afraid it is too early in the process to speculate about next steps.

Bill, sorry for the delay in responding. Daniel is right. (Thanks, Daniel!) It's 100 Megabits per second up and 100 Megabits per second down.

Do you have yard signs I can post in my yard or on my street to help spread the word? Thanks. I think Friendship has been needing something like this to help it grow. TEC and Wisper hasn't gotten better so someone needs to fill the need of fast, reliable internet. Plus looks like price will be great compared to TEC $105 for 25/3 or Wisper $70 for 6/1.5. Three Cheers for Gibson Electric.

Marilyn, As far as I can tell it's all based on how quickly people sign up and each zone meets its goals. When the goals are met and the project is approved by the board, they will then begin engineering and buying materials, then they will begin running the fiber optic cables that they will be using, as they reach residents who have signed up the services will become available. So depending on the manpower that they have dedicated to this project and the priority of each zone (how quickly they meet their goal and the demand in that area probably). There is a lot of factors so it'd be almost impossible for them to give a solid timeline.

What kind of time line are we looking at. at getting this in place. One or two years or longer. My daughter is building next to us but haven't started building yet. Hoping to have house built by spring of 2018. We definitely want it. I have already registered for my husband and myself..

If a zone doesn't reach the goal will it still receive the services down the line? As in the areas with highest demand will receive it first, then the lower demand areas?

It is kind of hard to generate signups in our area because there is no good internet option in our area. Many people opt for nothing since you can pay a lot for wireless /satellite and it is still terrible! This campaign seems geared to people who already have service. But I’ll keep trying to get the word out cause we need a useful service in our area so badly.

The answer is dependent on a number of variables like the number of miles of fiber that must be constructed within a zone and the number of zones currently under construction.
