Virginia: "Lenowisco hires broadband manager"

"A company based in Lee County will lease and operate a fiber-optic broadband network that will eventually serve much of Wise, Lee and Scott counties. The board of Lenowisco Inc., which is building the high-speed telecommunications pipeline, voted Monday to contract with Sunset Communications to manage the network. Lenowisco Inc. is a private non-profit company formed by the Lenowisco Planning District Commission to construct the fiber-optic system."

The article goes on to describe Lenowisco's financial arrangement with Sunset Communications. It also describes Lenowisco's current network and future planned expansions.

A second article describes a telecommunications-oriented industrial park Lenowisco Planning District Commission is building to tie into its' fiber network:

"Duffield -- Officials have begun preparing a physical space here for companies that depend on cyberspace to do business. Ground was broken Monday morning for the 40-acre, $2.5 million e-Corridor Regional Park-Southwest, which will occupy hillside land behind the existing Duffield Industrial Park ... its focus will be on attracting businesses that depend on high-speed broadband telecommunications to reach their customers."
