Broadband Mapping & Analysis

Creating accurate broadband maps is one of the first steps to promoting broadband expansion and technology growth in Ohio. The Connect Ohio mapping initiative is working closely with broadband providers from across the state to develop a variety of broadband inventory maps for public use.
Connected Nation has previously completed broadband mapping, field validation, and community engagement in the State of Ohio. Unfortunately, the funding for the state program expired on June 30, 2017 and has not been renewed at this time.

There is currently a bill in the Ohio Senate under consideration (SB225) that would re-establish broadband mapping and technical assistance, as well as create a $100 million broadband development grant to expand broadband into unserved and underserved areas. The Ohio House of Representatives passed a similar bill (HB378) in April 2018 with widespread bi-partisan support.

Examples of previously completed analyses and broadband maps for the State include*:
  • Broadband Services at Various Speeds (e.g., 10 Mbps Download/1 Mbps Upload, etc)
  • Density of Households Unserved by Broadband at Various Speeds
  • Number of Households Unserved by Broadband at Various Speeds
  • Maximum Advertised Download Speeds
  • Density of Broadband Providers at Various Speeds
  • County Maps of Broadband and Various Analyses
  • Interactive Map of Broadband and Various Analyses

*These services are still available on a fee-service basis. Please contact us at info@connectednation.org if you have any questions or would like to discuss our work in the area.
