These towers are designed to support colocation needs of wireless broadband and cellular providers to use for wireless Internet service, microwave backhaul, and emergency communications.
MBC’s network is connected to cell towers within its 1900-mile footprint to support data transport for multiple wireless and cellular providers.
Monthly lease for tower attachments: single attachments or full RAD center
Ground lease for placing a tenant’s cabinet or communications hut
Colocation of equipment in MBC-owned cabinet or POP, where available

MBC is committed to providing economic development leadership to Southern Virginia by operating nearly 2,000 miles of open-access fiber optic network, providing wholesale telecommunications transport, dark fiber and colocation services. With presence in major internet peering exchange points, MBC reduces the cost of Internet access for wholesale customers and reduces the time and cost to reach customers in rural Virginia markets. MBC’s network supports job creation as a critical element in the recruitment of major commercial investments.
