King William to hold broadband internet update meeting

The King William Internet Connectivity Committee will host a town hall meeting Sept. 5, 7-9 p.m. to update the public on internet expansion to schools, government offices, residents and business owners.

Discussions will center around internet in the county now, how the county plans to expand it and what it will look in the future.

The King William Board of Supervisors began discussing the sale of cable lines in February and on July 22, the King William Board of Supervisors voted to grant Atlantic Broadband a 15-year franchise plan to provide internet, phone and video services.

Atlantic Broadband said the expansion project primarily will focus on constructing a fiber-to-the-home network with a goal to bring internet connections to Central Garage.

In July, the company said internet activation is expected to start later this year and anticipated more than 2,600 homes and business will have access to internet for the first time.

Atlantic Broadband representatives will be present to address citizen concerns and discuss their ongoing project in the county.
