Daniel Norton Grinder Creek Road Hohenwald. My wife and I have lived in areas ( Houston,TX- Washington.D ) that have had high speed internet and enjoyed it very much. We do not have TV as we find TV very Worldly and not to our liking. We were only able to install satellite internet and are restricted to 50 GIG a month with poor quality, slow seeds in the evenings, and inop when a storm is in the area. We will be so happy when ML Connect puts in our 1 GIG package, Telephone service where we can STREAM MOVIES & other things.. GO GO GO ML CONNECT.

Thank you for your support! We are excited to bring fast, affordable, reliable broadband to all MLEC members in Hickman, Houston, Humphreys, Lewis and Perry counties. Residential services begin at 300 Mbps for $49.95. Check the "Products" tab for full information. Phase I (in and around the cities of our service territory) will serve as a reliable infrastructure for the entire five-county project and construction is expected to finish in 2019. Phase II areas are still under development, and we will make an announcement about this soon. However, we are committed to making broadband an option for ALL MLEC members by the end of 2022. Again, thank you for reaching out to us. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates.

I used to live in civilized areas of this world like Germany and Colorado Springs and the Denver area. I have always had cable internet and it's usually very expensive. Usually 150 Mbs was considered fast and they would charge about $90. So after looking over your pricing for your services for data speeds, paying about $80 or slightly more for 1 GB of data speed kinda makes me hesitant to believe what I am seeing. We currently have Viasat and we are paying about $150 for 50 Mbs which is the fastest satellite internet we could find. And if a cloud flies over us the internet dies out or they will throttle us during peak hours to around 10 Mbs. 10 Mbs is nearly dialup days slow and it's a constant source of frustration for us. All I can say is if you do put in this internet cable or fiber ( I am guessing its fiber due to the 1 GB option ). But if you do this I will be eternally grateful to you guys. I feel like my hopes are being raised just to have them dashed because so many goobers out here think cable internet also means you haft to have the TV packages even though you have stated clearly thats not the case. I hope this happens so we can happily get rid of satelite.

I’m inquiring about a more accurate time line as to when internet services will be available for my address. It looks as if the installment stopped one road before mine which is disappointing considering we’ve been waiting 13 years for any kind of internet service and the areas serviced already have multiple internet options available to them. I was very excited to hear about possible opportunities to connect but now from news sources it’s looking like it will be a few more years before we have options. Our home is less than four miles from town and 2 miles from hwy 20/Summertown hwy so it’s not like we are way out on the other side of the county. I would appreciate any new accurate updates you could provide. Thank you.

Thank you for supporting MLConnect. Like building the electric system 80 years ago, building a fast, affordable, reliable broadband network will take time. However, we are committed to making world-class broadband and hometown service an option for ALL MLEC members by the end of 2022. If you have not already, please register with us online by entering your address and picking a potential product. Then, when we are working in your area, we'll have a way to contact you and confirm the order.

Like building the electric system 80 years ago, building a fast, affordable, reliable broadband network will take time and starts with a strong foundation. Our goal is to serve all areas by the end of 2022. MLConnect is using a phase construction approach to build a reliable infrastructure for the entire five-county project. Services are being installed in Waverly, and construction is ongoing in Hohenwald and Centerville. After this, we will move to (in order) New Johnsonville, Erin, Tennessee Ridge, McEwen, Linden then Lobelville. It is our goal to have these all ready for service in 2019. We applied for six grants under the Tennessee Broadband Accessibility Grant Program and received one for a section of rural Humphreys County. We will apply for additional grand funds in the future. It will take time to cover MLEC's entire service territory, but we are committed to the task.

So it looks like Phase 1 is pretty much the same people in Hohenwald that already have access to Spectrum and other broadband Providers. I thought that the grant was made to deliver internet options other than satellite to people in Rural areas. To me that would be people outside of the areas that already have options. I'm sort of disappointed. 3 years to wait sucks.

MLConnect's original goal was to serve Coble and other areas outside of Phase I by the end of 2022. We're excited about the potential of moving that goal closer with the help of grants and other factors. As Phase I nears the end, Phase II will be designed. Areas selected for Phase II will be based on construction costs, existing infrastructure, time constraints, etc. Another determining factor is the amount of interest in each neighborhood (number of online registrations). This is why registering on the website is SO IMPORTANT. For example, if there are 50 houses on a road and only 4 registered, another location with 20 houses and 15 registrations looks to have more interest. High registration does not guarantee a neighborhood’s inclusion in the next phase, but more interest can increase its chances. Encouraging your neighbors to register as well would be a great help. Registration is not an obligation to buy, but shows area interest, helps guide future construction, and provides a way to contact you when broadband signups begin in their area.​ Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and http://www.mlconnect.com for updates.

So like I live barely into the coble zone how long do you think it'll take to upgrade me from sub mbps internet? till 2020? 2021? Don't hit me with that 'We'll get to ya when we get to ya' stuff though.

Like building the electric system, MLConnect will build out its broadband system to create the infrastructure first (connecting the cities). This is an important first step toward a fast, reliable broadband system to serve all five counties. We would be happy to verify if a specific location is in Phase I. Just email a physical address to customercare@mlconnect.com.

As is the case with every high speed internet provider, those of us outside of town are pushed aside. The area in Orange has access to cable and other high speed internet, while we are always just 2miles from any access. Just the way it's always been and always will be. Thanks anyway but I will search for a more promising available internet.


ML Connect - James Betz

All areas inside Phase I are expected to be live and begin receiving service in 2019. The other phases have not be designed at this time and locations not assigned to a particular phase. However, we anticipate all MLEC areas in all five counties will be completed in four years.

Great question! If NOT registered on our website, enter your address, select “residential” or “commercial” and then “Search For My Address.” If the next screen says, “Congratulations, your address is in the design stage,” you are in Phase I. Whether or not you are in Phase I, pick products you are interested in and click “Submit.” (Not an obligation to buy but registers interest and gives us a way to contact you when we are working in your area.) If you HAVE already registered, sign in or click on "Service Areas" above. From here, you can zoom in on the map. Areas in orange are in Phase I. The first MLConnect phase for broadband construction will help build the entire project’s infrastructure and must be built before we can move out to the more rural areas. But, we're coming! Other phases have not been designed at this time. To learn more about our phase approach and how you can register your area, check our FAQ section.

The service area MAP explains very little. It needs more explanation about what the colors are telling us. Please post what the colors are telling us or what they represent. It seems like the areas in town have access to all kinds of high speed internet, but those of us who live outside of town are treated like we don't exist.

Our rural hometowns - areas other providers have overlooked - are in immediate need of fast, affordable, reliable broadband for many reasons. This is why Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative stepped forward to establish MLConnect and help build our communities for the future. While we will not be offering tv packages as a service, the broadband speed offered by MLConnect will make streaming for programs such as Netflix, Hulu, etc. a viable option.

Our first phase includes in and around the cities within each of the counties MLEC serves. First up are Waverly, Hohenwald and Centerville. After that, we'll be building out in the other cities in this order to complete Phase I in 2019: New Johnsonville, Erin, Tennessee Ridge, McEwen, Linden and Lobelville. The first MLConnect phase for broadband construction will help build the entire project’s infrastructure. After that, areas where members have logged interest will help guide the projects’ progress.

No one wants to service any new areas on Highway 7 it seems. AT&T has not offered to extend anything even 1 more house. Comcast also has service in the Lyles area, but they also will not extend. Finally, someone listed the location in their service area. Wish we didn't have to do some sort of costly satellite with contract to get internet before this gets ready.
