eCorridors is an Information Technology program to promote and facilitate broadband access for communities of Virginia and nearby areas. It was developed by faculty at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (VT) in the spring of 2000.

The term “eCorridors” refers to the electronic data highways that such infrastructure represents. This brand name was created by Virginia Tech’s Vice President for Information Technologies, Earving L. Blythe, and the faculty member who was charged with leading eCorridors, Brenda van Gelder.

eCorridors serve as the electronic highway, creating economic development in the networked economy. Just as our transportation road system enabled interstate commerce throughout the United States, eCorridors enable e-commerce in the global marketplace.
