Who is eligible for TEC Fast Fiber Internet service?

If we pass your home with fiber cables you should be able to receive Fast Fiber Internet from TEC. We are not restricted on who we can provide this service to.

Why is service not available for my address?

We are currently looking to expand service to many areas but expansion is based on many factors. How far is your home from a TEC fiber line, have we been given approval through your city/municipality, how dense is the population of your service area, etc. These are questions that must be answered in order to bring fiber to any service area. To increase your chances of receiving fiber, please submit your information and ask your neighbors to do so as well. This will help us determine where it would be most efficient to expand.

When will you be bringing my area Fast Fiber Internet or how can I speed up the process?

Once you have submitted your information, you will receive a confirmation e-mail that we have your address on file. Our next update will be announcing a new project across our social media, and you will receive a call from our sales team to let you know that fiber is coming to your area. Encourage your neighbors and friends to sign up as well, we take the amount of customers in an area into consideration when looking to build our next Fast Fiber Internet project.
