CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – West Virginia’s governor says broadband network operator Zayo Group will build a fiber network crossing 200 miles of the state.

Gov. Jim Justice said Thursday the broadband route will link Columbus, Ohio, with Ashburn, Virginia, which is near Dulles International Airport.

The company says construction of the network will begin early next year and will take two to three years to complete.

The governor announced in September that West Virginia would provide broadband developers with free access to state right-of-ways as a way to encourage construction of broadband networks in the state.
