From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Located in Northern Virginia near Washington Dulles International Airport, the Dulles Technology Corridor, dubbed the "Netplex" in 1993 by Fortune magazine, contains the "vital electronic pathways that carry more than half of all traffic on the Internet. The region is home to more telecom and satellite companies than any other place on earth."[1]

The corridor generally follows Virginia State Route 267, the Dulles Access Road, between Loudoun and Fairfax counties, which are the highest and second-highest income counties in the U.S. as of 2006, coinciding with the national technology and local internet boom of the 1990s and local technology spending after the September 11, 2001 attacks. The region contains the Internet Society, and used to contain the mainframe that houses the master list of all Internet domain names.
