Memphis’ Technology stretches 46,000 miles throughout the city

With 46,000 miles of fiber and growing, Memphis is committed to widespread digital infrastructure. Need proof? Memphis is home to Memphis Networx, an innovative group formed to create a citywide fiber optic network and help eliminate the remaining “last mile bandwdth” bottlenecks in second and third-tier metro space. Memphis Networx is the nation’s only company of its kind whose financing comes from a unique combination of public and private investment, including utility Memphis Light Gas and Water (the largest three-service utility in the United States) and a group of private investors that includes Fred Smith, CEO of Federal Express, and J.R. Hyde, Founder and Former Chairman of AutoZone.

Mpact Memphis is the vehicle for civic engagement for young Memphians. From life-long residents to those who have just relocated, we offer a portal and entree to service and leadership in the community. From the individual member’s perspective, we offer the opportunity for immediate engagement and networking among fellow Memphians.

Mpact Memphis was founded in 2001 by a group of young Memphians to unite a diverse group of young people and get them involved in the community. The logic was that if we can begin to work together at 30 and 35, instead of 45 or 50, we will be better both individually and as a community.
