Revolutionizing Connectivity: United Communications Brings Stealth Fiber to Middle Tennessee

By Brandon Fisher, Residential Sales Supervisor

As a local company committed to offering residents and businesses the fastest and most reliable connections, United was one of the first local internet service providers to install fiber internet in Middle Tennessee. Since then, we’ve witnessed firsthand the transformative power of fiber—blazing-fast speeds, unmatched reliability, and a gateway to a world of possibilities. While fiber internet was a game-changer for the industry, the traditional installation process—digging trenches for underground cables—presented challenges. Construction delays and disruptions to property were unavoidable hurdles.

That’s why we’re thrilled to introduce United Stealth Fiber, a revolutionary new approach that eliminates the need for disruptive trenching and ushers in a new era of fiber internet accessibility. For nearly 20 years, I’ve had the privilege of working across different departments in the telecommunications field—from installation to financial services and sales. While fiber internet has always delivered amazing performance, the installation process could be time-consuming. United Stealth Fiber streamlines that process, offering a smoother and faster connection experience for our customers.

Introducing United Stealth Fiber: A Smarter Way to Connect

United Stealth Fiber is a groundbreaking process that leverages the power of collaboration. As a service of Middle Tennessee Electric, United has the ability to leverage its existing Smart Grid conduit for our fiber optic cables. The Smart Grid infrastructure provides a secure and reliable pathway for our fiber network, allowing us to deliver the exceptional speed and stability of fiber internet without the traditional disruption caused by trenching. Imagine building a high-speed rail line on existing tracks instead of laying down new ones from scratch. That’s the essence of United Stealth Fiber. 

United Stealth Fiber: Changing the Game for Middle Tennessee

United Stealth Fiber offers a multitude of benefits for our customers and our communities:

1. Reduced Construction Timelines

By utilizing MTE’s existing Smart Grid conduit, we can significantly expedite the installation process of fiber cable. This translates to less lead time to bring fiber internet into your home or business, ensuring you can connect to the digital world faster.

2. More Cost-Effective and Sustainable

Reusing existing infrastructure minimizes the need for digging and construction materials, making the process more cost-effective. Additionally, the existing smart grid conduit is less likely to be damaged by future construction projects, ensuring a longer lifespan for the fiber network and reducing the need for future repairs and replacements.

3. Environmentally Friendly

Traditional trenching can disrupt landscapes and ecosystems. United Stealth Fiber minimizes this impact, making it a more environmentally responsible approach to expanding fiber internet access.
