Ohio is investing approximately $10 million to expand the speed of its broadband network to 100 Gbps.
The high-speed boost is something Gov John Kasich (R) believes will foster better research, education, manufacturing and engineering opportunities in Ohio. The expansion will use the fiber-optic network operated by OARnet, a member of the Ohio Board of Regents Ohio Technology Consortium. OARnet provides networking backbone to higher education, research, government, medical, K-12 and public broadcasting.
