Progress Update

We are pleased to update the residents and businesses included in the Sewanee Fiber Pilot Project’s Phase I area. We are now far enough into the fiber project to plan for service installations to individual homes and businesses located in this area. Over the past year, construction crews have worked to replace poles and complete other projects in preparation for fiber installation. Some installations are following the same route as DREMC’S existing overhead electric infrastructure, while in other areas, such as Wiggins Creek Subdivision, fiber cables are being buried alongside roadways near DREMC’s underground electric infrastructure.

If you are interested in signing up for fiber service, (which may include telephone, internet, security and video) please contact Ben Lomand Connect at 931-203-3999 or by email at Visit for package and pricing details. DREMC and Ben Lomand representatives will wear personal protective equipment and follow social distancing guidelines when meeting in person to discuss the new services.
