The DeWine-Husted Administration is building on Ohio’s success and economic growth by breaking down barriers for Ohioans and reducing bureaucracy for Ohio communities. For more than 300,000 households, which is close to 1 million Ohioans, a major barrier they face is access to high-speed internet. In parts of Ohio, there are households that lack the basic connectivity necessary for children to do homework, look for a new job or access an online education or training programs.  See more at ... Ohio Broadband Strategy

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Lt. Governor Jon Husted today commended Ohio high-speed internet providers who have announced they will take part in the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) “Keep Americans Connected” Pledge to help Americans impacted by disruption caused by the Coronavirus Pandemic. These providers pledge that they will not terminate service to any residential or small business customer for failure to pay during the pandemic; they will waive late fees for those customers, and open their Wi-Fi hotspots to anyone who needs them.
