LENOWISCO proposes to put the world’s most advanced communications infrastructure within reach of every business and citizen in the LENOWISCO area within 10 years. The overriding goal of the program is to act as a catalyst in creating substantial economic, educational and health care improvement opportunities for citizens of the region and competitive advantage for its businesses through the development of extremely high speed, reliable network infrastructure at a fraction of currently available prices. This infrastructure will be private sector based as a means of ensuring its sustainability and economic viability, and will enable the emergence of the newly developing communications and network industry in southwest Virginia. This new industry, in its infancy, combines leading edge optical technologies with very high capacity wireless networks and advanced features of the Internet protocol to enable an extraordinary advantage in cost and communications power.
