Mapping Virginia's Broadband
Accelerate Virginia Laptop

The eCorridors program at Virginia Tech is continuing a statewide effort to engage and educate the public and raise awareness about broadband availability in Virginia. Through the AVa Project eCorridors is collecting information on the speed quality of consumer Internet services.

As a partner in the Virginia broadband mapping initiative, eCorridors is responsible for collecting end-user Internet connectivity information, like connection speeds, quality of service, costs, etc. The end-user information collected by Accelerate Virginia will be used to expand on provider data collected by the state to verify the statewide Virginia broadband map.

In addition, eCorridors will be producing value added alternative mapping and informational products such as, end-user generated maps and report generation tools. eCorridors will continue to periodically, and upon request, perform analyses of data collected from the Accelerate Virginia speed test application. As a research tool, Accelerate Virginia will be used to assess the availability, affordability, and quality of Internet services across the state.

Be a part of history

eCorridors and Accelerate Virginia are asking Virginia residents, businesses, educational institutions, healthcare facilities, public safety groups and others to provide information about the quality of their Internet connection. eCorridors is coordinating speed testing campaigns with community leaders to reach more people across the state. Concentrating collection efforts in planning districts will allow eCorridors to give focused attention to geographic divisions of the state.
