Page County Broadband Authority
Page County Broadband Authority plans to deploy a 39-mile fiber network that will serve the four principal towns in Page County, Virginia, a rural and underserved area in the Shenandoah region of Western Virginia. The network expects to directly connect 29 anchor institutions including eleven K-12 schools, three libraries, six health care facilities, Lord Fairfax Community College, and eight public safety institutions. The project intends to provide speeds from 100 Mbps to 4 Gbps and spur more affordable broadband Internet service for local consumers, including as many as 6,300 households, 700 businesses, and an additional 24 anchor institutions, by enabling any local Internet service provider to connect to the project’s open network. The network also plans to support the new Premier Technical Services Data Center, which provides administrative services for federal and state government programs.
