Broadband Services

Mid-Atlantic Broadband Communities Corporation (www.mbc-va.com), with grant funding primarily through the Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), and Virginia Tech, owns and operates more than 1,800 miles of advanced, open-access fiber network in Southern Virginia that reaches 100 percent of the business, industrial and technology parks in the region.  MBC has helped to strengthen the region by supporting local and regional economic development groups that have directly resulted in over a thousand new jobs and $1.7 billion in private investments throughout Southern Virginia. MBC’s network was vital to the locating of Microsoft’s data center in Boydton.
