The prevailing broadband speeds available to many of northeastern Ohio’s vital community institutions and
government agencies are insufficient to provide necessary services to consumers in economically distressed
parts of the region. OneCommunity’s Transforming NE Ohio project proposes to build 900 new miles of fiber,
leveraging another 2,000 miles of existing network, across 20 counties. OneCommunity expects to directly
connect almost 800 community anchor institutions, including public safety entities, health care centers, K-12
schools, and higher education institutions at speeds between 100 Mbps and 40 Gbps, while enabling high-speed
last-mile service throughout the region.
