Erin is in the process of joining the number of communities with broadband internet available to every resident.
Currently, both TEC and Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative are rolling out high-speed internet across Erin and Houston County through the installation of fiber-optic lines.
TEC, which as 3,000 customers in Houston County, has been upgrading its network from copper to fiber and has already installed over 150 miles of fiber there, according to a news release. By the end of 2019, TEC plans to complete an additional 23 miles of fiber optic cable and plans to have the entire network in Houston County completed by 2025.
Residential service at 1 Gbps is $69.95 per month. For more, go to TEC.com.
