Creating Information Networks for 21st Century Communities 
Brambleton thinks far beyond the concept of a planned community…it is a town designed for the information age of the 21st century.  The Broadband Group (TBG) was charged with creating a broadband plan that matched the requirements, location, and commitment to excellence expressed by the Brambleton planning and management team. As perhaps TBG’s most significant success story over the past five years, The Broadband Group brought Brambleton and Verizon Communications together to create, launch, and operate the nation’s first Regional Bell Operating Company fiber to the home community. Brambleton has now taken its rightful place as one of the nation’s most advanced pure fiber communities.  In this historic partnership, Verizon Communications provides the Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTP) technology to all of Brambleton’s residential dwelling units.
