Firefly Fiber Broadband

Firefly Fiber BroadbandSM is operated by Central Virginia Services, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Central Virginia Electric Cooperative (CVEC).  Firefly is leasing fiber which CVEC is installing to provide high-speed communications across its electric distribution system. 

Firefly Fiber BroadbandSM uses fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) to offer affordable and reliable, gigabit speed broadband and crystal-clear phone services to residential and business customers.  Firefly “landed” in Appomattox in Fall 2018 and is currently connecting accounts in Nelson County who are served by the CVEC Martin’s Store substation.  All CVEC members will be given the opportunity to sign up with Firefly by 2023. 

Firefly has also made a commitment to Nelson County to provide service to as many as 1000 more county homes and businesses in the county beyond the CVEC territory over the next five years.  As the areas are identified for construction outside of CVEC territory, they will be announced and potential subscribers will be contacted.

Firefly celebrated its 1000th customer in Roseland in September2019.  Firefly’s mascot, Flash, “landed” at Jack Buni’s home to celebrate the occasion with balloons and cookies.  The $100 installation fee is waived for all Firefly customers who pre-register for service during the fiber construction phase.  Firefly promises no contracts, no usage or data caps, no slowdowns due to weather, and symmetrical upload and download speeds. The business is focused on providing great internet service at world-class speeds and at low prices.  Best of all, the profits that are realized from Firefly are owned by the members of CVEC
