Expand Broadband Coverage

Expanding high-speed internet coverage in western Loudoun is key to enhancing our rural economy, expanding education access, and improving quality of life. 

I am proud to have pushed the board to pass its first Strategic Plan for Rural Broadband Expansion. My ultimate goal is an in-ground western Loudoun fiber loop as a cost-effective means to provide hard-wired access for both schools and private use. 

 

RECORD OF RESULTS:

  • Secured $5 million in funding for the in-ground fiber loop and working with county staff on ways to include private companies in the planned construction. 

  • Cut business personal property taxes in half on the installation of new wireless broadband equipment to encourage private broadband expansion projects 

  • Saved our Communications Commission from closure and improved its relationship with county staff 

  • Worked with individuals and communities to secure new broadband access. 

  • Streamlined process for certain types of telecommunication and wireless deployment

  • Worked annually with our State & Federal lobbyists toward legislation to expand our authority regarding broadband expansion in rural areas.
