You are invited to join Mid-Atlantic Broadband Corporation, Adaptrum, Delegate Byron, and community leaders on June 15th for a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the launch of the SOVA Innovation Center, Bedford County’s newest engineering and research initiative.
The SOVA Innovation Center will serve as Adaptrum’s East Coast R&D and operations home-base, housing the innovative TV White Space wireless technology that will help make broadband affordable and available to residents in rural southern Virginia as well as to other unserved communities across the US and internationally. Building on the success of the Homework Network TV White Space pilot program, the largest initiative of its kind in North America, the SOVA Innovation Center will be instrumental in expanding the program from 100 households to 1,000 households by the end of the year.
