      <br>
      EPB has brought a great product to the home here in Chattanooga,
      it just can't be beat. BUT if they want to cater to businesses and
      bring technology here they have to get the costs down on these
      connections.<br>
      <br>
      Overhead like that keeps most new businesses from starting up at
      all.  I have had similar experiences with EPB.<br>

            on the list.  Did they really quote $50k for Iron Labs gig
            service?</div>
