Nelson County, Virginia
In a mass e-mail sent out by IBEC customer service  Monday, and in comments posted on our site by IBEC , an agreement has been reached with Verizon  for the installation of their lines providing the internet backbone to BPL. We have followed the entire history of BPL / Verizon events here.
Today’s e-mail from IBEC:
From: “IBEC Customer Service”
Date: November 3, 2008 1:30:28 PM EST
Subject: Martins Store BPL Update
IBEC is pleased to announce that the issue regarding Verizon and the backhaul circuits has now been resolved. Verizon has agreed to continue installing the circuits. We will let you know as soon as the circuits are activated. We will then start turning on the first customers a few days after the circuits are online.
Thanks for your patience,
IBEC Customer Service
No time frame was given in the e-mail, as to when service could be expected, but with much of the work already done on both sides, it would seem that BPL service would start relatively soon.
If anyone is activated, please drop a comment here so we can track the progress!
