In the 21st century, our ability to access the internet plays a significant role in how we live, work and play. Virginia’s cable 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’re 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.
About The VCTA
The Virginia Broadband Association (VCTA), with offices in Richmond, Virginia is the trade association for the cable telecommunications industry in Virginia. The Association was founded in 1966.
VCTA membership is comprised of System Members and Associate Members. System Members are cable systems operating in Virginia, and there are presently 10 System Members serving homes and businesses across Virginia. Associate Members currently number more than 100 and are individuals, firms, and corporations who provide goods and services to the Virginia cable industry.
The Association is guided by the VCTA Board of Directors,
which is comprised of cable executives from companies across all of Virginia and associate member representatives.
Through the years, the VCTA has informed members of issues affecting them, represented its members before state and federal regulatory agencies, the state legislature, and the United States Congress.
The Association serves as a clearinghouse for information to members and non-members. Each year the Association
sponsors the Virginia Cable Show, recognized as one of the top-rated cable trade shows in the nation.
The mission of the Virginia Broadband Association (VCTA) is to promote the cable television and telecommunications services of member companies in the Commonwealth of Virginia to the public, the business community and state officials.
This will be accomplished through coordinated public relations and awareness efforts, adequate training, organized member lobbying, timely and informational meetings and conventions and consolidated efforts with local, state and national cable advocacy groups.
The VCTA will operate by, for and with its members and will be a storehouse and source of member information.
