BOCO Broadband Journey

Botetourt County has partnered with Lumos Fiber to make universal broadband coverage a reality for our community by the Spring of 2024. Lumos Fiber is working diligently to continue work on our Virginia Telecommunications Initiative Grant (VATI2) that will bring fiber to the home to those that have been patiently waiting this vital utility. 

In April,  Senator Mark Warner and Dr. Tamarah Holmes visited to kick off the VATI2 project.  During the event, we were able to talk to those that have been a part of the broadband project as well as chat with citizens and business owners that have had life change because they now have reliable internet coverage.
