Nelson County Broadband FAQ

Project Overview

The Nelson County Broadband Project is the design and construction of a combined fiber optic and wireless middle mile network. The objective is to provide a state of the art high-speed network backbone generally through the center of Nelson County from north to south, providing the ‘highway’ for private providers to enhance and expand broadband internet services in the county.

The Nelson County Broadband Project construction phase is currently underway. Three towers will be made available to private providers to expand wireless services into un- and under-served areas of our county.

The Nelson County Board of Supervisors serves as the Broadband Authority which oversees the project. The project is funded by Federal stimulus funds, Commonwealth of Virginia block grants and by local set aside funds. Additional information is available on the NTIA Broadband USA project site.
