About us

WideOpen Blacksburg is an initiative of WideOpen Networks. We are bringing Gigabit internet fiber to Blacksburg and nearby areas in the New River Valley.

Blacksburg Broadband LLC (dba WideOpen Blacksburg), is wholly owned by WideOpen Networks, and headquartered in Blacksburg. We are creating local jobs and a locally-owned, world class, fiber infrastructure, with the goal of connecting every home and business in the area to Giga-fast fiber. If you are tired of paying high fees for your Internet, voice, and TV, take our survey to let us know where you live and that you are ready to make the switch to fiber. The NEW survey goes live March 3, 2020. Please take the survey again for this new round even if you have taken it before. [And let your neighbors know to take the NEW survey, too!]

Combined, we bring an experienced team of telecom professionals dedicated to building the world's best network here in Blacksburg.
