I see cable has been laid across 13 and Phillips drive near the State police barracks. Would this be the beginning of your fiber optic cables?
Our fiber goes up Texaco Town Rd from Phillips Drive. If you will reach out to our sales staff, we would be happy to provide you a quote if you are close to that area.
Hello! I’m looking to get internet hooked up at my residence. Is this available in Bloxom.VA? My address is 24419 Guilford Rd Bloxom 23308. I will start college next month and am in need of internet service. Scott Perry recommended you guys! Can’t wait to hear from you! My cell number is 7577090473
We have approved building up Guilford Rd from the town of Bloxom however, that buildout is still underway. We are hopeful to have it done in the next few months. Please check back with our website to see updates!
Am very interested in the service. Is it available on back street bloxom va? Is there any limits on usage being we have few children.
The service is currently part-way up Back St but we are working on building the rest of Back St. The ESVBA does not have any data caps as you would a wireless provider. We just limit the total bandwidth based upon your service selection.
Any chance you could go a few more miles and connect Modest Town ?
We do have fiber between Mappsville and Nelsonia but it is on Rt-13 at the current moment. We will continue to work on funding sources to spread the network including building on Metompkin Rd but that is not part of this buildout.
Any chance of running it to Modest Town,
We are located right between Nelsonia and Mapsvile.
And have a similar sized population.

The ESVBA has fiber on the East side of Rt-13 on Horsey Rd and on Saxis Rd but we do not have fiber on your side of Horsey Rd at the current moment. We will be continuing to work on securing additional funding to buildout more of the shore for those that are cannot serve yet.
