Omni Fiber enters Southwestern Ohio with $7m fibre investment
Ohio-based provider Omni Fiber has partnered with the City of Wilmington to bring broadband access to the majority of the city with a new full-fibre network.
Once the estimated $7m project is complete, the fibre network will provide reliable high-speed internet access to residents and businesses. Residential services will include plans up to 2Gb/s (2,000 Mbps). Small business solutions will also be available later this year.
Darrick Zucco, CEO at Omni Fiber says: “Omni Fiber is excited to partner with yet another Ohio town that is understandably eager to improve connectivity and broadband access for their residents and local businesses. Bringing more reliable broadband access and a new choice in internet service for underserved areas across the Midwest is a mission we’re proud of and appreciate the City of Wilmington supporting our efforts.”
Wilmington Mayor, John Stanfort adds: “This is another example of a company making a major investment in Wilmington. This investment will give our residents an important new option for Internet service, which I believe will lead to further growth of our city.”
Construction is currently underway, with installations expected to begin in the summer.
