In the 21st century, our ability to access broadband plays a significant role in how we live, work and play. Virginia’s broadband industry is proud to connect our digital lives.


Broadband Association of Virginia (VCTA) members provide high-speed broadband connections to 
households and businesses of all sizes, educational institutions, hospitals, data centers, nonprofit organizations and many of Virginia’s government and military facilities. 

We are proud that Virginia is a leader in worldwide peak broadband speeds.

But, the need to connect continues. Our members work every day to expand broadband access for unserved populations in urban, suburban and rural areas of the Commonwealth. We build responsible, sustainable additions to Virginia’s fiber optic cable network – making our own investments and using existing infrastructure.
