Tennessee Wireless opposes reclassification of Internet Service

Centerville, TN (November 13th 2013) – Tennessee Wireless, a local Middle Tennessee provider of broadband Internet Service, believes that president Obama’s push to reclassify Broadband Internet as a utility is a mistake and that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) should not reclassify consumer broadband service as a utility under Title II of the Communications Act.

As a local provider of High Speed Internet services, Tennessee Wireless, supports a free and open Internet without subjecting small businesses to a regulatory model that is inadequate for its original charter and that would impose unnecessary burdens and restrictions on the thousands of small Internet Service Providers (ISP) who serve our rural communities.

Tennessee Wireless further agrees with the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association’s (WISPA) statement “that common carrier regulation of the Internet would place undue harm on small Internet Service Provider (ISP) businesses that economically and rapidly extend broadband service to areas that currently have it today. Title II would increase compliance costs, increase regulatory risks and deter investments for small ISPs, contrary to the Congress’ intent when it adopted Section 706 of the Telecommunications Act in 1996.”

“You get more of what you reward and less of what you punish,” according to Paul Vaughn the President of Tennessee Wireless.  “If the FCC wishes to continue the growth of Internet service availability in the rural communities of our nation then it needs to truly value the entrepreneurial effort that it takes to provide that service.  They need to recognize that while the large price cap carries have refused their CAF funds to serve these areas, it is the entrepreneurial can do spirit of the small provider and private equity that is stepping up to provide this needed service.  If the FCC is serious about truly connecting the nation, then it will act in the best interest of all service providers and protect the rural communities and their local providers by keeping the unnecessary burden Title II classification in the phone closet.”

What kind of internet is Tennessee Wireless?

This is a question that we get quite often. Many people think it is satellite or cell tower provided. Nothing could be further than the truth. Tennessee Wireless uses a technology called “Fixed” wireless, also sometimes referred to as “Air Fiber” technology. Tennessee Wireless is known as a WISP. wireless Internet service provider (WISP)

Fixed wireless is the operation of wireless devices or systems used to connect two fixed locations (e.g., building to building or tower to building) with a radio or other wireless link. Usually, fixed wireless is part of a wireless LAN infrastructure. The purpose of a fixed wireless link is to enable data communications between the two sites or buildings. Fixed wireless data (FWD) links are often a cost-effective alternative to leasing fiber or installing cables between the buildings.

The point-to point signal transmissions occur through the air over a terrestrial microwave platform rather than through copper or optical fiber; therefore, fixed wireless does not require satellite feeds or local cellular or telephone service. The advantages of fixed wireless include the ability to connect with users in remote areas without the need for laying new cables and the capacity for broad bandwidth that is not impeded by fiber or cable capacities. Fixed wireless devices usually derives their electrical power from the public utility mains, unlike mobile wireless or portable wireless devices which tend to be battery powered.

Tennessee Wireless signs 10 year contract with the Town of Centerville

Meeting with Centerville Mayor Bob Bohn


Tennessee Wireless will post its wireless data radios on six Centerville water towers and the roof of the golf course club-house, under a lease approved by the Board of Aldermen on November 13.

The Centerville company already operates a wireless system in several locations, including the water tower on Grinders Switch Road. The new water tower locations are: Columbia Avenue, Water Tower Road, Mobley Ridge and Nine Mile Road, and on Highway 100 West near Freeman Wood Products, in Centerville and Plesantville.

Paul Vaughn, Tennessee Wireless’s President, said it may take a year to erect all the wireless boxes. Work will begin at the golf course, in the Skyview Drive area, and he expects the unit near Freeman, serving the Brushy area, to be next.

“We may not use all of them,” Vaughn said. “We’ve got to grow in a sustained model.”

Interested residents can make request for service via a form that is accessible at

Vaughn said Tennessee Wireless recently completed a fiber upgrade, and purchased Orb Wireless of Lobelville. That step helps establish a long-term goal: developing a loop that includes Linden and Lobelville, so the service “can have a complete circle.”

The company’s 10-year lease with the Town of Centerville specifies that Tennessee Wireless will pay the town $50 per month per radio for the first six months, then $100 a month after that; and, after the first year, another $50 per month if more than two radios are placed in service at any one of the locations.
