Horizon Kicks off Regional Fiber Optic Network Projects in Circleville, Ohio
CHILLICOTHE, OH – July 15, 2021 – Horizon, an Ohio-based regional fiber broadband company, began expanding its regional fiber-optic network with the construction of a state-of-the-art fiber-optic network to the residents and businesses in Circleville, Ohio.
Horizon has been building telecommunications networks and serving communities for over 125 years. Horizon recently kicked off the first of many projects in the region, constructing a 100% fiber-optic network in Circleville, Ohio. Soon the homes and businesses will have access to Horizon’s symmetrical GIGABIT+ fiber service- the fastest, most reliable internet service in the area. This expansion of Horizon’s fiber network is a cutting-edge system designed to meet the ever-increasing internet demands of today and into the future.
“We are very excited to bring the first symmetrical GIGABIT+ internet network to the residents and businesses of Circleville.” Said Jim Capuano, Chief Executive Officer at Horizon. “Horizon believes this Fiber-To-The-Home/Business network is designed to surpass all customer expectations for quality, reliability, and speed. This project, in addition to our builds in Chillicothe, is the first project of many we have planned in the region. The support of the residents, who have shared their appreciation for the importance of high-quality internet service, and Mayor Don McIlroy and the local government of Circleville, who understands the economic impact this network will have on their community, makes Circleville an obvious place to kick off our initiative. This has been a true Resident Public-Private partnership from the beginning.”
The lack of fast, high-quality, reliable internet service has an impact on local economies, education, telework, and public health. Horizon’s new fiber service provides the speed businesses and residential customers need to run multiple devices, simultaneously. This ensures everyone has the bandwidth they need to do what they do even better.
“Broadband access and quality of service has never been more important to our residents and businesses than it is right now,” says Ryan Scribner, Executive Director of Pickaway Progress Partnership. “I’m thankful for the investment Horizon is making in the City of Circleville and am sure it will pay dividends in our efforts to promote positive development in the community.”
City and county officials agree that access to high-speed fiber internet is crucial to residents and businesses in the area. Circleville Mayor Don McIlroy commented, “As you have noticed, Horizon has been installing fiber throughout the city of Circleville. This fiber infrastructure is critical to facilitate the delivery of fast broadband to our citizens, businesses, and to our visitors. This super- fast broadband has the ability to provide internet service to our citizens at a very high speed, everyone will benefit through choice and faster access to services.”
