Comcast set to roll fiber in Chattanooga, 7 years after fighting to stop city's FTTH plan

Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) is set to deploy a 2 Gbps fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband product in Chattanooga, Tenn., to 200,000 customers in June, directly competing with fiber services provided by not only AT&T (NYSE: T) but also municipal utility EPB. Ironically, the move comes seven years after Comcast worked to stop EPB from rolling out its service. FierceTelecom has a complete look at Comcast's entry into the Chatanooga FTTH market here.
