  • Horizon is a facilities-based, fiber-optic broadband service provider based in Ohio with expanding services across the Midwest. Founded in 1895 as the Home Telephone Company, our organization began offering local telephone service and grew to accommodate the ever-changing needs of our customers, community, and employees. In 2009, Horizon started designing and building a fiber-optic network in southern Ohio; and since has grown to provide high-quality connectivity solutions for small to large enterprise and wholesale carrier customers, where high-reliability and high availability are critical. Today, we are divided into two sectors: Enterprise Fiber and Residential with Small Business.

    Our Enterprise Fiber division runs over 6,000 route miles of fiber and continues to grow through acquisition and construction. We deliver fiber-optic Ethernet, Internet, cloud-based Hosted Voice, dark fiber and wavelength services in Ohio, West Virginia, western Pennsylvania, and Indiana with data center connectivity and backhaul services across the Midwest.

    Our Residential and Small Business division delivers Internet, phone, digital video, security, and broadband services to several counties in southern Ohio. With a new focus on Fiber to the Home, Horizon’s residential services are growing beyond southern Ohio, launching new markets in need of faster, more reliable home service.

    In our long company history, we have grown and evolved our business for the technological changes and innovation that the telecommunications industry demanded; all the while never losing site on the one thing that has remained a staple to our success – our superior customer service and unmatched responsiveness.

  • We believe that your business is unique and while a bundle deal on an over-lashed network might work for some, it doesn’t work for most. Horizon’s experienced team of Fiber Account Executives, Sales Engineers, and Service Delivery teams work with you to develop a solution that best matches your business. Whether you require a custom build with diverse and redundant routes, or simply need fast and reliable dedicated internet access, we have you covered. Our out of the box approach to connectivity is what has driven our innovation for decades.

  • Our business expanded from being the first to offer cable television and Internet service in Ross County to providing cutting-edge voice, video and fiber broadband services throughout Ohio and bordering states. Our mission is to provide peace-of-mind to our customers and their end users by delivering high-quality, highly reliable network technology for business, entertainment, and communication. We are different than other telecommunications companies because we strive to understand our customers’ needs and concerns when tailoring the perfect, customizable, flexible solution for their home or business. Our customers get the convenience of quality service from a local company who is committed to providing positive customer experiences.

  • Horizon’s roots are grown in Ohio, while our wings are expanding in the Midwest. Locally we have supported many organizations in the community, including the United Way, the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, the Chillicothe Paints Baseball Club, Junior Achievement, 4H, Red Cross and more. Through sponsorship, volunteering, and donations, we give back to the communities that have always supported us.

    We strive to continue this hometown commitment to other communities we serve. We are active Chamber members and technology leaders helping to develop our neighborhoods, working with local governments and broadband organizations. At Horizon, we make business personal and that means making our communities personal.
