Governor DeWine, Lt. Governor Husted Announce New Broadband Expansion Projects
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Lt. Governor Jon Husted today announced new broadband expansion projects that will make affordable, high-speed internet available to nearly 100,000 households in Ohio that currently don’t have access to reliable internet connectivity.
This morning, the Broadband Expansion Authority authorized BroadbandOhio to award more than $232 million in grants to 11 internet service providers as part of the Ohio Residential Broadband Expansion Grant Program. The funding will be used to cover the “broadband funding gap” associated with 33 broadband expansion projects impacting 31 counties. Over $130 million in grant projects (56% of the allocated funds) were awarded to Reid Consulting Group Clients.
