The SouthEast Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors has its annual conference in Chattanooga this year – March 12 and 13th. The conference includes a tour of EPB’s Gigabit network (the largest muni network in the nation) and its PEG operations.

This conference will undoubtedly be buzzing about the legislation in South Carolina and Georgia that aims to shut down community networks just like North Carolina did last year.

Deena Shetler, the associate Chief of the FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau will be giving the keynote. Give it a look if you are in the neighborhood.
