ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - The Roanoke Valley Broadband Authority plans to seek proposals this week for a project expanding high-speed Internet options in Roanoke and Salem.
The Roanoke Times (https://bit.ly/1HNez00 ) reports that a request for proposals to build 46 mils of broadband fiber will be published on Friday. A contract could be awarded within two months.
The authority plans to create a new broadband network serving the two cities.
The estimated cost is slightly less than $4 million. Salem and Roanoke have agreed to gradually repay the project’s debt until the authority generates enough business.
