PCBA Network Overview Map

Public notice for special public hearing on proposed rates

The Page County Broadband Authority (PCBA) was created in 2009 to establish a publicly owned broadband infrastructure as a way to address economic development needs in Page County. In 2010, the PCBA received a grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to build a wireless middle mile network. The network utilizes six towers that span the length of the county, running through the Towns of Luray, Stanley and Shenandoah, and the Springfield area. Each town has a fiber distribution point that runs from the backbone to the designated anchor institutions. Anchor institutions include public schools, libraries. town offices, health and law enforcement facilities.

The PCBA middle mile network provides for the creation of an open access non-discriminatory platform, offering broadband providers the ability to economically expand their service areas, companies the opportunity to build private networks they own and control, and last mile providers the ability to service homes and small businesses. Network capacity provides the PCBA the ability to offer low latency bandwidth in increments from 5 to 500 Mbps at publicly posted prices.

The desired outcome of the PCBA network is to foster entrepreneurship by attracting, maintaining and reviving businesses throughout Page County.
