Thanks to its high-speed broadband, Chattanooga is starting to play a new role in the future of smart cities.

Late last year, this city was one of only two in this country - and among three dozen cities around the globe - selected to test new technologies developed by the G20 Smart Cities Alliance, announced by the World Economic Forum.



The work here in Chattanooga builds on a partnership that began two years ago between The Enterprise Center, CO.LAB, Erlanger Health System, EPB - and our own campus, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.


Kevin Comstock is Smart Cities Director for the City of Chattanooga.


Ray is the host and producer of Scenic Roots, Mondays - Thursdays at 3 PM on WUTC.
