The Virginia Telecommunications Initiative (VATI) is instrumental in supporting Lumos’ fiber broadband network construction, which in turn enables them to serve our community.

Unfortunately, there has been an unanticipated and unavoidable delay in the Hardbarger area of the County.  Lumos sincerely apologizes for this and wants to assure residents there that the team is working with its public and private partners to bring fiber connectivity as quickly as possible.

An extension was granted by the Department of Housing and Community Development to extend the deadline for this one area in our first VATI grant from December 31, 2022, to March 31, 2023; however, Lumos anticipates service will be available before then.
