“We are thrilled to expand our innovative services to these customers in Ohio’s Appalachia region, and look forward to working with each customer to find the right mix of products for their household,” said Shannon Atkinson, Time Warner Cable Area Vice President of Operations.
“Rural communities continually struggle to obtain the same level of access to resources that are available to urban and suburban counterparts,” added Connect Ohio’s Executive Director Lindsay Shanahan. “Connect Ohio is excited about all efforts to help expand broadband access, adoption, and use throughout Ohio.”
“Broadband service is an integral part of our daily lives, and I commend Time Warner Cable on making these investments throughout Ohio and especially in the Appalachian region,” remarked State Senator Troy Balderson (R-Zanesville). “This infrastructure will be very meaningful to thousands of households that previously lacked high-speed internet service, and it will open the door to numerous educational and economic opportunities for scores of Ohioans.”
Communities benefiting from the upgrades include:
- Harrison County: Bowerston, Cadiz, Hopedale, Jewett, Scio and surrounding areas.
