The Arlington Information Technology Advisory Commission advises the Board on the following issues and concerns:
Verizon is rolling out cable television and internet service across the county through fiber optic cabling direct to the home. Review the Verizon rollout map (.pdf) to see when service will be available in your neighborhood. Monthly construction schedules show where Verizon's build-out is occurring in Arlington.

During the month of October 2012, several focus group meetings were held to gather information, facilitate discussion and exchange ideas about what ConnectArlington can be and what it could do for the community. The results of these discussion groups were collected, aggregated, analyzed, and documented in a presentation. You may view the presentation here (PDF). The final report of the Broadband Focus Groups may be viewed here (PDF).

The United States has transitioned to all-digital television broadcasting.
If each television in your household is connected to cable, satellite or a telco service (i.e. Comcast, DirecTV, or Verizon FiOS), then no further action is required on your part.
If one or more of your televisions receives broadcasts over-the-air (i.e., with a roof top antenna or "rabbit ears"), then you may need to purchase a DTV converter box for each television set.
For more information about the transition to digital television, please visit DTV Transition online or call 1-888-DTV-2009.
