When Bristol Virginia became the first municipal electric company in the United States to launch a fiber-to-the-user (FTTU) network offering a "triple-play" of services, a new day dawned for the American workplace. The event created options for companies and telecommuters that were never possible before.
A twin city located in the southern Appalachian Mountains, Bristol rests directly on the Virginia-Tennessee state line and is part of the metropolitan statistical area that includes the Tennessee side of Bristol and Kingsport, Tennessee – an area of more than 400,000 people.
With its world-class fiber infrastructure and easy lifestyle, Bristol is considered a national model for the migration of IT businesses without the high cost of metro areas. In fact, its cost of living is about 25 percent lower than in major urban areas.
Besides being a prime spot for outdoor recreation, Bristol has a distinctive country music heritage and pristine landscapes that draw thousands of visitors each year.
