EPB Fiber Optics Crews Working Overtime For Vols Fans

Thursday, September 4, 2014

EPB Fiber Optics will work around the clock from now until Saturday to make sure as many people as possible can watch this week’s Tennessee Volunteers game in high definition on The SEC Network, officials said.

“We know most folks are not up at 2:00 a.m., but for customers who are serious enough about watching the Vols in HD to schedule an after-hours appointment, EPB Fiber Optics will work straight through the night to install as many people as possible,” said Harold DePriest, president & CEO of EPB.

When the Vols host Arkansas State at noon Saturday, The SEC Network will broadcast the game on their overflow channels.

Jed Marston of EPB said, "While other providers only offer The SEC Network overflow channel in standard definition, Fi TV Gold subscribers can enjoy this game and others on channel 384 in high definition.

"This offer is available to residents in single-family homes, who are either already scheduled for EPB Fiber Optics installation or new sign-ups by 7:00 p.m. Friday. While we can’t guarantee all installations by game time, our team will work day and night to complete as many orders as possible. 

"Anyone who wants to take advantage of our expedited 24-hour installation through Saturday morning can call us at 423-648-1372."

He was probably the smartest person I have ever known. He was tough but patient, kind, caring and compassionate. He knew how to get ... (click for more)
