September 12, 2022
According to an update reported to the Public Service Commission of West Virginia last week, Appalachian Power and Wheeling Power have completed design, engineering and pole replacements in Logan and Mingo counties, leaving them on schedule for a larger broadband access project.
Broadband access is being facilitated through infrastructure expansion, and presently, the project looks to be completed by December 2023. Workers from the companies began installing 361 miles of fiber optic cable in July for that effort.
