Our Story

When industrial prospects in the 1990s raised questions about communication infrastructure plans in Jackson, the Jackson Utility Division realized communication companies had no major plans for Jackson. JUD and the City of Jackson committed then to enter telecommunications and invest in Jackson’s economic future. 

In 1997 JUD and other municipalities pushed legislation to the TN General Assembly to allow municipal electric systems to enter telecommunications. That legislation passage transformed the Jackson Utility Division into the Jackson Energy Authority. 


EPlus Broadband: The Jackson Energy Authority telecommunications network. 

Jackson Energy Authority invested $80 million in building Tennessee’s first, state-of-the-art, community-owned fiber-to-the-home network. The telecommunications network, called EPlus Broadband, launched in 2004.

Jackson Energy Authority also launched EPlusTV 6, 206HD, a company-produced local access channel committed to Jackson coverage. 


Cutting Edge, Dependable Technology 

Jackson Energy Authority invested in point-to-point fiber infrastructure to “future proof” Jackson. With unsurpassed bandwidth capacity, EPlus Broadband is prepared for any future bandwidth demands.
