JAMES CITY-Residents and businesses in James City County will have another option for cable and broadband services starting this summer.
Installation of Glo Fiber, a 100 percent fiber network, by Shenandoah Cable Television LLC, or Shentel, is underway. The company is planning to offer internet, television, and phone service to those who live in Williamsburg, James City County, and upper York County.
Installation of the fiber network first began in the City of Williamsburg in the summer of 2022, while installation has ramped up in James City County this spring. Many county citizens have noticed the equipment and workers throughout their neighborhoods in recent weeks.
According to Stuart French, government and community affairs specialist for Shentel, construction began in the county’s neighborhoods just west of Williamsburg in March. Crews are currently working on installation in multiple neighborhoods, with service set to begin for some as early as this summer.
“No neighborhoods are complete as of yet,” French said. “The first areas should be complete and ready to offer service by the end of June. This is a very large project that we expect to extend into 2024. Our latest projections have construction wrapping up in the third quarter of 2024.”
