Fiber-optic cables are used for broadband internet.

AUGUSTA COUNTY — Thanks to a $95 million grant, unserved areas in Augusta County will receive fiber-to-the-home internet access as part of a northern Shenandoah Valley regional project implemented by All Points Broadband.

This grant will enable the construction of a regional fiber-to-the-home broadband network to bring internet access to approximately 40,000 unserved locations across eight counties.

“We are eager to see broadband initiatives progress in rural areas,” said Pam Carter, Augusta County supervisor. “Such enterprises will benefit the citizens that have so enthusiastically advocated for service. Fulfillment of initiatives will culminate many years of work in the county.” 

All Points Broadband announced that its regional broadband project in partnership with the Northern Shenandoah Valley Regional Commission and the counties of Augusta, Clarke, Fauquier, Frederick, Page, Rappahannock, Rockingham and Warren received the $95.3 million grant award through the Virginia Telecommunication Initiative program, according to a press release.
