Lumos Fiber To Rapidly Expand Its Ultra-Fast 100% Fiber-Optic Network Across Virginia

WAYNESBORO, VA.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Thousands of homes and businesses in Virginia will soon have access to a state-of-the-art, 100% fiber-optic network from Lumos, a premier provider of fiber-to-the-premise internet. In a continued expansion of its ultra-high-speed fiber internet service, Lumos announced an accelerated construction schedule for expansion in Virginia, adding more than 12,000 homes and businesses across five communities by the end of 2022.

Waynesboro, Augusta County, Stuarts Draft, Crozet, and Bedford County, including parts of Lynchburg, will reap the benefits of a 100% fiber-optic network enabling economic growth and the ability to attract gig workers who want to live, learn, work, and thrive in the region.

"Our ambition is to bring gig-speed fiber internet to as many communities as possible across Virginia and beyond," Lumos CEO Diego Anderson said. "I'm thrilled to announce our 2022 plans to bring a future-proof network to even more of Virginia”.

Only a 100% fiber-optic network can provide virtually unlimited broadband capacity and synchronous download and upload speeds necessary for today’s ultra-high-bandwidth applications, including HD quality video meetings, virtual learning, latency-free VR gaming, e-commerce, and cloud computing,” continued Anderson.

Construction will begin immediately, with plans for completion by the fall of 2022. Some communities will have access as early as March 2022.

The announcement was met with widespread support from local leaders who are eager to have a next-generation fiber-optic network to enable the gig economy in their communities.
