MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Tenn. (CLARKSVILLENOW) – Cumberland Connect has announced it is now live in the southern portion of Montgomery County, offering what is for many the first non-satellite option in the Southside area.
Cumberland Electric Membership Corporation (CEMC) announced Cumberland Connect in early 2018, promising to bring high-speed, fiber optic internet service to all of their customers.
CEMC serves a broad swath of Middle and West Tennessee, including areas of Stewart, Cheatham, Robertson, Sumner and Montgomery counties.
Cumberland Connect is currently available in most of CEMC’s Stewart County Service area, as well as Adams and Orlinda in Robertson. Montgomery County’s Southside area is the newest addition.
According to Cumberland Connect’s online expansion map, Cunningham and Oakridge are expected to receive service “soon,” with Palmyra and Woodlawn following in 2021.
Cumberland Connect offers internet, TV and phone services. Their internet speeds range from 250 Mbps for $50/month to 1000 Mbps for $80.
Unlike most satellite internet servicers, which many rural areas of Montgomery County have had to rely on until now, Cumberland Connect does not include data caps or speed throttling.

Correction: Cumberland Connect is now available in most of Stewart County, not all of the county. The article has been updated.
