Shentel Continues to Expand Fiber Networks to Schools and Libraries

Posted 24 July 2018 11:12 AM by shentel

Shentel continues to add significant multi-year contracts for wide area networks and dedicated internet access for schools and libraries throughout Virginia.

Shentel is very pleased to have won competitive bids to provide broadband internet and data services to the public school divisions in Alleghany, Rappahannock and Russell counties in Virginia. Shentel has also been awarded new contracts to expand fiber-optic services to public library systems including the Handley Regional Library in Winchester, the Samuels Public Library in Front Royal, the Wythe-Grayson Regional Library in Rural Retreat and the Rappahannock County Public Library.

These new contracts come on the heels of recent broadband fiber network deployments for public school divisions including the cities of Roanoke, Harrisonburg and Lynchburg, as well as the counties of Shenandoah, Nelson, Amherst, Bedford, Franklin and Giles.

“We continue to expand our advanced fiber-based services to support the growing data needs of schools and libraries in our communities,” said Ed McKay, Senior Vice President of Wireline & Engineering. “We have over 5,500 miles of fiber throughout Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, and one of Shentel’s top priorities is to ensure that we provide world-class broadband access to the students in our markets.”

Businesses and municipalities interested in Shentel’s fiber-based services can call 800-SHENTEL for more information about internet, data and voice service options. For more information about all of Shentel’s services and recent activities, please visit Shentel on Facebook or at
