Frequently Asked Questions

If you are in a planned build area, you will receive multiple communications from us regarding our construction plans, including mailers, door hangers and you will see our road signs.

Once construction begins, it can take several months before services can be ordered. We will send out mailers once we are able to begin taking pre-orders.

The Commonwealth of Virginia's Telecommunication Initiative has provided grants to counties across Virginia to expand coverage to underserved areas. The counties shown above have selected Shentel to partner with to provide this coverage. Shentel's mission has always been to provide rural areas with the same telecommunication services as are available anywhere else and we are excited to be a part of this program.

We will be installing fiber optic cable either underground or on the existing poles throughout the planned neighborhoods. During this construction phase, you can expect to see construction teams, trucks and other equipment in the build areas.

We do not anticipate a disruption in any of your current services or utilities during construction, but if you do experience a loss of service, let us know and we will restore your services as quickly as possible.

If you are in a planned build area, once we are completed you will be able to order fiber-optic Internet speeds up to 2 Gbps. We can also provide digital TV and Home Phone services. As we get closer to completion, you will receive additional communications about our services.
