Governor Establishes Broadband Ohio Network To Expand High Speed Internet Access in Ohio

In order to coordinate and expand access to the state?s broadband data network, Ohio Governor Ted Strickland has signed an executive order establishing the Ohio Broadband Council and the Broadband Ohio Network.

The order directs the Ohio Broadband Council to coordinate efforts to extend access to the Broadband Ohio Network to every county in Ohio. And the order allows public and private entities to tap into the Broadband Ohio Network ? all with a goal of expanding access to high-speed internet service in parts of the state that presently don?t have such service.
