EPB, formerly known as the Electric Power Board of Chattanooga, is an American electric power distribution and telecommunications company owned by the city of Chattanooga, Tennessee.[2] In 2010, EPB was the first company in the United States to offer 1 Gbit/s high-speed internet, over 200 times faster than the national average.[3] On October 15, 2015, Chattanooga implemented the world's first community-wide 10-gig Internet service, available to all homes and businesses in EPB's service area.[4]

In 1935, an act of the Tennessee Legislature established EPB as an independent board of the City of Chattanooga to provide electric power to the Greater Chattanooga area. Today, EPB remains one of the largest publicly owned electric power distributors in the country.[5] EPB serves more than 170,000 homes and businesses in a 600-square-mile (1,600 km2) area that includes greater Chattanooga and Hamilton County, portions of surrounding Southeastern Tennessee counties and areas of north Georgia.

OK Industries EPP 1000 is a revolutionary technological breakthrough. It is the world's first battery-powered punch down tool, offering the convenience of battery power and designed for operator safety and efficiency. This revolutionary patented tool features over 1,000 impacts between charges, dual action trigger for LED task lighting and impact, quick easy blade lock and release, 90 degree blade orientation adjustment for any angled impact, high/low impact settings, easily adjusted powerful yet lightweight 7.2 volt lithium-ion battery, and a quick charge battery charger. To use the EPP 1000, insert the battery into the base of the tool. Next, select the correct blade. 66, 110, krone, or other, they all fit. Next, insert the blade into the front of the tool choosing either the cutter or non cutter end. Rotate the blade clockwise until the locking slot of the blade finds the locking pin and engages the blade. Continue turning until it locks in place. Make sure the blade is locked in place, otherwise it could discharge causing injury or damage to property. The blade can also be adjusted to one of four positions, rotating in 90 degree increments. With the front of the tool pointing towards you grasp the blade and pull away from the tool. The blade holder will extend approximately one quarter inch. Twist the blade clockwise 90 degrees, and release. The blade holder will retract and the blade will remain locked in its new position. Repeat this step as needed for alternate positioning. After you have chosen the correct blade, select the appropriate impact setting based on seating requirements. With two fingers you can switch to a high or low impact setting by pushing or pulling the adjustments tab up or down. Position the wire to be punched on the block. The trigger has a dual function design. Squeeze lightly and hold to illuminate the target area with the built in LED light. Next, place the blade over the wire to be seated and push forward to partially seat the wire. Squeeze the trigger fully and hold to complete the punch down. After impact, release the trigger. The wire is now seated. If you are using a blade with a cutter the excess wire should have been cut off. If the wire has not been cut, squeeze the trigger again. It's that simple. Jonard Industries offers a full line of fiber optic, CATV, and other popular hand tools. Be sure to check out our tools on the web or request our catalog. We thank you for choosing Jonard Industries, a technologically advanced manufacturer and your source for high quality tools.



EPB is also providing its gigabit internet service in the Chattanooga Airport, where visitors enjoy free high-speed Wi-Fi service. They set up a demonstration area in the former gift shop. EPB also provides free high-speed Wi-Fi in Miller Plaza.[6] EPB is also one of the largest providers of electric power in the US.[7] EPB has petitioned the FCC to allow them to deliver internet to communities outside of the 600 square mile area that they service. Nineteen states in the US have laws that make it difficult or impossible for utility companies to deliver internet outside of the area that they service.[8]

Fiber optics

When EPB first turned on the fiber-optic network for internet, customers were getting up to ten times the speed to which they were accustomed. Even those with lower-priced internet tiers saw their speeds nearly double. The service now has reached up to 10 Gbit/s. Using fiber-optic technology is much cheaper, since the price of internet went down almost $300 per month when they started using the new technology.[9]

Using a 100% fiber-optic communication network as its backbone, EPB has created a Smart Grid. The grid is a next-generation electric system that includes communication capabilities designed to reduce the impact of power outages, improve response time, and allow customers greater control of their electric power usage. This same fiber optic backbone allows EPB to offer high-speed Internet, TV, and phone service to business and residential customers in the service area.[2] In September 2010, EPB became the first company in the United States to offer one gigabit-per-second Internet speed, a critical component of next generation technology innovation and economic development, to more than 175,000 homes and businesses. This exclusive capability has attracted worldwide attention and earned Chattanooga the nickname "Gig City."[3]
