New for 2020: Faster Verizon FiOS Broadband Speeds!
As one of the first Fiber-to-the-Home communities in the country, broadband internet and television services have always been an integral part of the resident services offered to the Brambleton community. To ensure that residents continue to receive high-quality internet and television services, Verizon has implemented a $4.5M infrastructure upgrade throughout the community during 2019. Once this transition is complete, all Brambleton homes will receive 500/500 Mbps internet speeds. These speeds, along with Verizon FiOS HD Extreme, make up the Telecommunications Package and are paid for monthly through the community’s HOA fees.
