Albemarle

Overall Status: SCS Broadband currently serves from Afton to Greenwood areas of Albemarle County with our wireless services. These areas includes the Route 29 corridor.

Current Status: We have approvals for LTE deployment completed for the Heards Mountain tower site. Our LTE system has plans ranging from 10Mbps to 50Mbps starting at $34.95 with true unlimited, non-throttled internet. Our WIFI plans are 2Mbps to 15Mbps.

Future Plans: We are working with other organizations to expand services into the western portion of Albemarle County, including Crozet. SCS Broadband will begin transition to LTE on Heards Mountain in November. We hope will be adding additional commercial towers to our network this year in Amherst County, greatly expanding our network through grants.

 

Amelia

Overall Status: SCS Broadband won a Request for Proposal early in 2017 and submitted a proposal to produce an Implementation Plan. The Implementation Plan was produced and delivered in June, 2017. That document would include a design of a wireless network and a timeline for the project. It is still under consideration by the County.

Current Status: SCS Broadband continues to build-out in counties surrounding Amelia and awaits a County decision on our Implementation Plan with a wireless network design. We have approvals for LTE deployment requirements completed for Amelia County. Our LTE system has plans ranging from 10Mbps to 50Mbps starting at $34.95 with true unlimited, non-throttled internet. Our WIFI plans are 2Mbps to 15Mbps.

Future Plans: We hope to have approvals and begin expansion shortly thereafter, from the County.

 

Amherst

Overall Status: A large portion of Amherst County has our wireless services available. These areas include the northern part of the county, Lowesville, Turkey Mountain, Gladstone, Tobacco Mountain and the entire western portion of the Larkin Mountain region.

Current Status: We have approvals for LTE deployment in process for several tower sites. Our LTE system has plans ranging from 10Mbps to 50Mbps starting at $34.95 with true unlimited, non-throttled internet. Our WIFI plans are 2Mbps to 15Mbps.

Future Plans: We will begin transition of the current LTE sites in November. We hope will be adding additional commercial towers to our network this year in Amherst County, greatly expanding our network through a pending partnership with the County.

 

Bedford

Overall Status: SCS Broadband has deployed services in Montvale area and valley. Additional expansion is in the analysis phase.
Current Status: SCS Broadband has added additional relays in Montvale and is currently adding additional equipment to the Montvale tower to improve and expand services. Installations continue weekly from the Montvale tower and these additional relays.

Buckingham

Overall Status: SCS Broadband has provided wireless services for the Spears Mountain region for several years. We also serve portions of the County from sites in Nelson County.

Current Status: We have submitted a proposal to create a county wide Implementation Plan for wireless services, which would include our new LTE broadband speeds up to 50Mbps. The Implementation Plan would contain a detail design of a countywide network based on analysis of all vertical structures and requirements of the County. The document also includes an estimated Project Plan with timelines. This was delivered in February, 2017.

Future Plans: We will begin transition of the current LTE sites in January-February for the Spears Mountain area after final FCC approvals. We hope we will be adding additional commercial towers to our network next year once we can alleviate an issue of County fees for permits for collocating on towers. Currently the fees, $3,000 to $5,000 makes it prohibitive to expand further in Buckingham County. We have no such fees in any other county.

 

Charles City

Overall Status: SCS Broadband has loaded all three County towers with our WIFI and LTE systems and have begun deployments to homes and businesses. We have also connected a private tower into the network to help with backhaul issues faced by the County towers.

The Roxbury tower had some height and terrain blockage issues and is being refitted with our WIFI systems which provide better tree penetration. SCS Broadband is investing in leasing commercial towers over the next few months to augment the wireless network and greatly improving servicing ability. Our LTE system has plans ranging from 10Mbps to 50Mbps starting at $34.95 with true unlimited, non-throttled internet. Our WIFI plans are 2Mbps to 15Mbps.

Future Plans: SCS Broadband will continue to expand to commercial towers between now and mid-2018 to bring our WIFI and LTE systems online for servicing homes and businesses. The next steps are in process which include a tower on Charles City Road in the western portion of the County.
