On Saturday, February 21 2015, the Arlington county board voted to start selling fiber optic access to federal agencies, businesses, and organizations in the commercial areas. Arlington’s fiber optics were initially built with extra capacity to be sold for economic development. Since faster and stronger connections have become an important staple of doing business the county is expecting this to attract more businesses to the area. Roslyn-Ballston corridor, Glebe Road, Columbia Pike, and Crystal city are among the areas that will have access to the fiber optics.
