Mid-Atlantic Broadband Cooperative

Middle Mile Expansion for Eastern Virginia

To address the need for broadband infrastructure in the economically distressed region of eastern Virginia including Franklin, Southampton, Isle of Wight, Surrey, and Suffolk, the Mid-Atlantic Broadband Cooperative (MBC) proposes to construct 170 miles of new fiber to complement its existing network in southeastern Virginia, providing backbone speeds of up to 100 Gbps. The Middle Mile Expansion for Eastern Virginia project proposes to enhance education in the region by enabling schools to access upgraded, higher capacity services at affordable rates, offer expanded distance learning opportunities, and remote teaching, video conferencing, and testing. The network also plans to enable greatly improved telemedicine, especially radiological imaging and the improved use of electronic medical records.
