Roanoke Valley Broadband Authority
In 2014, the cities of Roanoke and Salem, and counties of Roanoke and Botetourt, joined to create the Roanoke Valley Broadband Authority, with the goal of increasing broadband speed and decreasing costs. In late 2015, work commenced on a 47-mile fiber ring through the cities of Roanoke and Salem, with completion of the project slated for January 2016. The purpose of this project is to improve affordable broadband services to the Roanoke Valley by encouraging collaboration, competition, and long-term investments. The network will be operated as an open-access network.
