Loudoun supervisors allocate $12 million to broadband expansion

The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously in favor of a measure that addresses a lack of reliable high speed internet, primarily in western Loudoun, VA. As part of the county’s Emergency Broadband Implementation Plan, the county administrator was directed to apply for a Virginia Telecommunications Initiative (VATI) grant in partnership with All Points Broadband for the extension of broadband into unserved portions of the County.

Updating broadband mapping key to expanding access in Loudoun, FCC acting chairwoman says

Acting Federal Communications Commission Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said more a comprehensive map of where broadband internet service is currently available is needed before gaps in coverage can be addressed. Speaking along with Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-VA-10th) at the Loudoun County Public Schools Administration Building in Ashburn, Chairwoman Rosenworcel said updating the map is one of several initiatives the FCC has launched to address broadband infrastructure needs across the country.
