GAINESBORO – Twin Lakes announced today that its Putnam County broadband grant application is a finalist for funding from the Tennessee Emergency Broadband Fund – American Rescue Plan (TEBF-ARP). 

If awarded, the proposed $15 million dollar grant project will assist in the construction of a 195-mile fiber network that will be used to provide broadband access to all remaining unserved residents and businesses in Putnam County.  

“While official grant awardees will not be announced by the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development until August, we are optimistic about the opportunity to serve the unserved in Putnam County,” said Jonathan West, General Manager and CEO at Twin Lakes.
