In the past quarter, Connect Ohio has been busy:
• 28 more counties have become involved in the non-profit’s eCommunity strategy process, which helps counties develop a way to address challenges related to technology growth;
• 560 additional participants have joined in the process, helping to grow the grassroots efforts; and
• 400 computers have been distributed through Connect Ohio’s No Child Left Offline program.
Thanks to the work on these teams, every one of Ohio’s 88 counties and more than 2,500 people are helping Ohioans in the fight for ubiquitous broadband.
“We are very optimistic that the work put into each county’s plan will result in affordable broadband Internet service becoming available to every Ohioan in the near future, said Tom Fritz, Connect Ohio’s executive director.
