The network is being facilitated by Verizon Virginia, and the increased broadband connectivity can be made available for business applications. Verizon will use spare capacity in the system to offer new advanced broadband services throughout the Commonwealth including rural areas. Rather than building a single purpose, state-owned fiber optic network solely for research (the approach taken in the few other leading states), Virginia is leveraging NetworkVirginia to collaborate with Verizon and other providers to build a new statewide Wave Division Multiplexing-based (WDM) system to support both research and economic development interests. This public private partnership will cost significantly less than a single purpose system. "We'll be able to use this as another tool in our economic development arsenal," said the Governor.
