As part of our region’s current application with the Virginia Telecommunications Initiative (VATI), the co-applicant, All Points Broadband (APB), is currently collecting information about our region’s customers to decide which location will be first in line to receive APB’s fiber service. Residents of King George, Northumberland, Richmond, and Westmoreland Counties can complete the service here.
All Points Broadband, Dominion Energy, Northern Neck Electric Cooperative and the Counties of King George, Northumberland, Richmond, and Westmoreland entered into a Memorandum of Understanding this year to advance a regional broadband partnership that aims to deliver fiber-broadband service to all unserved households and businesses in Virginia’s Northern Neck Region. The Northern Neck Planning District Commission has requested funding from VATI to cover about 30% of the total cost of the project. The remaining will come from all other participating partners.
The Virginia Telecommunication Initiative (VATI) extends broadband service to currently unserved areas. VATI prepares communities to build, utilize, and capitalize on telecommunications infrastructure with the goal of creating strong, competitive communities.
