Expansion of Dickenson County Broadband Internet

This petition had 183 supporters

This petition was created to voice the need for expansion of high speed broadband internet access to the residents and businesses in Dickenson County. This petition will be sent to the Dickenson County Board of Supervisors to urge the Cumberland Plateau Planning District Commission to either buyout or allow the sale of BVU-OptiNet.

This sale/buyout would potentially allow broadband service expansion in our under-served area, as well as other parts of Southwest Virginia. It is extremely vital in moving our economy forward that our citizens have access to affordable, high speed internet.

Expansion could attract new businesses, increase income through work from home opportunities, and thus creating jobs and lowering our unemployment rates. Broadband will also enhance general civic communication and provide educational enhancements for area students, to include homeschooled children.

Let's improve our infrastructure and empower Dickenson County with online opportunities, no matter where we may live. Broadband is no longer a luxury, it is a necessity! Let's not let Dickenson County get left behind. Let's thrive!

PLEASE SIGN this petition.
