Nelson County Virginia Broadband Project

The Nelson County Virginia Broadband Project plans to enhance and expand broadband Internet services in unserved and underserved areas of rural Nelson County, Virginia, by deploying 31 miles of new fiber and four new wireless tower sites, and directly connecting 13 community anchor institutions. The anchor institutions expected to receive direct connections to the new network are seven county government facilities, four K-12 schools, the Blue Ridge Medical Center, and one library. The project plans to provide speeds from 10 Mbps up to 1 Gbps and spur more affordable broadband Internet service for as many as 1,500 households, 250 businesses, and an additional 30 community anchor institutions by allowing Internet service providers to connect to the project’s open network.
