Horizon Redefines Connectivity in the Midwest with Multi-Market FTTH Build Outs
3 Key Market Expansions Spearhead an Ongoing Movement that will Bring Rich Connectivity to Regional Homes and Businesses
COLUMBUS, Ohio – March 3, 2022 – Horizon, an Ohio-based fiber-optic broadband company, is proud to announce its collective expansions across Greenfield, OH, Washington Court House, OH, and Lancaster, OH. These three Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) build outs represent a significant step forward in bridging the Midwest’s digital divide, providing robust, high-speed broadband to communities, municipalities, businesses and homes across the region.
In Greenfield, Washington Court House and Lancaster, these builds will respectively deliver:
- 31 miles of new fiber, passing 2,665 homes and businesses
- 76 miles of new fiber, passing nearly 6,500 homes and businesses
- 183 miles of new fiber, passing more than 14,600 homes and businesses
Users throughout this region have exhibited strong and growing demand for advanced networking solutions, whether to support day-to-day communication, digital service delivery, digital transformation initiatives or overall quality of life improvements for local communities. FTTH is a strategic method for delivering highly scalable bandwidth and low latencies right to the user’s front door, empowering next-gen applications and supporting crucial use cases — both at home and at work.
This FTTH expansion in Greenfield is set to begin construction in April 2022, and it will go live to customers in late summer 2022, while construction on the Washington Court House leg will begin in May 2022 and go live to customers in September 2022. Construction in Lancaster will also launch in May 2022 and will go live to customers in November of this same year.
With an aggressive approach to meeting both immediate needs with these builds and long-term needs across a greater service area through subsequent planned projects, Horizon is providing mission-critical and affordable networking solutions with increased speed, capacity and reliability. In this way, the company continues to demonstrate its role as a trusted network partner and dedicated community ally.
“Ensuring access to robust fiber networking is not an initiative that can be kept on the backburner, and that’s why we’re proud to be unveiling our extensive plans for building out connectivity in Ohio and beyond,” comments Jim Capuano, CEO of Horizon. “Nothing is more important to Horizon than delivering the infrastructure and the customer experiences that everyone in this digital age deserves, and we’re underscoring that core commitment with tangible builds both now and in the future.”
While in the construction phase in these three initial markets, Horizon also has future buildouts planned in several communities throughout the region. The company will soon announce builds in 6 additional markets, underscoring its enduring commitment to delivering fiber that the Midwest and its communities can thrive on.
Today, Horizon operates 5,500+ miles of fiber across Ohio, West Virginia, western Pennsylvania and Indiana, with data center connectivity and backhaul services that span up to Chicago, IL.
