Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (Shentel) (SHEN), an established provider of state-of-the-art Ethernet, dark fiber, wavelength and other customized broadband services, announces that the company has been chosen to provide dark fiber connections between all municipal buildings in the City of Harrisonburg, VA, as well as lit fiber services and dedicated Internet access to all of the Harrisonburg City School buildings.

Upon completion of an exhaustive review process including multiple vendors, the City of Harrisonburg ultimately selected Shentel.  “We are extremely excited about this opportunity,” said Paul Malabad, IT Director for the City of Harrisonburg. “The city appreciates Shentel’s commitment to providing advanced telecommunication services and their dedication to supporting our specific needs. Shentel is regionally headquartered, which means local support, and they have a historically great reputation.”

Shentel provides an advanced fiber-optic network designed to support reliable, high-bandwidth data connectivity.
