Telecommunications Commission

The Telecommunications Commission was established by the Board of Supervisors as an advisory group to the Board of Supervisors. The commission promotes and encourages compliance with the franchise agreements among the cable companies operating within Stafford County, reviews and advises the Board on cable television services, telecommunications, broadband (both wireline and wireless) and local infrastructure issues, and promotes local community programming to keep citizens informed.

Meetings are open to the public, and time is reserved at the beginning of each meeting for presentations by the public. Citizens can speak on telecommunications-related issues during this time period. Public Presentations are limited to 3 minute per presenter. If you wish to have the TCC consider your case that you meet the density requirements for cable/internet service under one of the Franchise agreements (>= 20 Homes Per Linear Mile), you are asked to submit the required documentation to the TCC at least ten (10) days in advance of the TCC meeting. Please see “How to calculate your HPLM” for instructions on how to prepare your HPLM documentation.

Citizens are also encouraged to contact their district's representative on the committee with service complaints or issues.

Please note that parts of Stafford County are considered rural by companies that provide high-speed Internet connectivity via cable, telephone (both land-line and cellular) and wireless providers. While these services are more readily available along Stafford's major transportation corridors, such as I-95, Jefferson Davis Highway and Garrisonville Road, they are not always available in all parts of Stafford. If you are looking for a home in Stafford, the Telecommunications Commission recommends that you check first with the providers (Comcast, Verizon and Cox) to see if these services exist at the location in which you are interested.
