Ohio Lt. Governor Jon Husted announced a broadband expansion project in Mt. Healthy that will provide high-speed internet to approximately 3,000 residents and create public hotspots around the city. Today's announcement is part of Governor Mike DeWine and Lt. Governor Husted's BroadbandOhio Connectivity Grant program to enhance and expand high-speed internet access to unserved and underserved Ohioans.

The State of Ohio, Hamilton County, Mt. Healthy City Schools, and the City of Mt. Healthy have partnered with altafiber to increase digital equity and drive more access to educational, healthcare, and employment opportunities through broadband Internet.

Through the partnership, altafiber and its Smart City organization – branded as UniCity – will deliver fiber-enabled, high-speed public Wi-Fi to the following apartment complexes: Clovernook Apartments, Compton Lake, Burney View, and Lake of the Woods. In total this represents 828 apartment units that will have access to the public Wi-Fi.

In addition, altafiber will provide high-speed public Wi-Fi in Mt. Healthy City Park and the Central Business District of Mt. Healthy along Hamilton Avenue (from Kemper Avenue to Adams Road) and along Compton Road (from Hamilton Avenue to Clovernook Avenue). The community will be able to access the high-speed public Wi-Fi through a splash page at “_MtHealthyFreeWi-Fi.” Lake of the Woods, Burney View, and the City Park are fully functional today. Clovernook and the Central Business District are under construction. The remaining locations are expected to be completed in approximately 90 days.
