  • Expanding Public Wi-Fi

    The County’s Office of Broadband Programs is adding or upgrading wireless access point (AP) equipment at FiberNet locations that will enable free public wifi at public facilities.

  • Ashburn Fiber Routes

    The goal of the Ashburn Fiber Route project is to create shorter-distance routes between Montgomery County and Ashburn Virginia data centers. Most broadband connectivity from the County – especially in the growing Life Sciences Center/Great Seneca Science Center in Gaithersburg and Germantown – travels longer routes to Ashburn, north to Point of Rocks, MD, or south-to-east-to-west through Washington DC and northern Virginia.
