Businesses and residents in Greendale will have access to a broadband fiber network over the next two years through a partnership with Cincinnati Bell. Terms of the agreement call for the deployment one gigabit high-speed broadband to every address, approximately 2,200, in the Dearborn County city.
The city says it will spend $625,000 towards the project in which Cincinnati Bell will invest $2.5 million to implement the project.
As part of the agreement, Cincinnati Bell will help design, construct, and install the infrastructure to support public Wi-Fi in designated parts of Greendale.
“Internet connectivity is mission-critical to access jobs, educational opportunities, and health-care resources,” said Tom Simpson, chief operating officer of Cincinnati Bell. “We are excited about this partnership with the City of Greendale, and appreciate the city’s leadership in support of digital equity and equal access to high-speed broadband Internet.”
Cincinnati Bell says it has invested more than $1 billion since 2010 in the greater Cincinnati area to build a fiber network across the region.
