Affordable broadband coming to more of Virginia

Governor Youngkin announced yesterday, Friday, September 1st,  the release of his plans for closing the digital divide.

The plans outline the strategies for connecting Virginians to high-speed, affordable broadband.

It will allow Virginia to access its $1.48 billion federal allocation to deploy high-speed internet to areas without broadband.

The 5-Year Plan falls under the Federal Infrastructure Investments and Jobs Act.

These funds will be prioritized to reach the unserved homes, businesses and community anchors in the Commonwealth that do not yet have broadband.
