Frequently Asked Questions

What is Summit County doing to improve internet options?


The Summit County Executive Office has been planning to expand broadband options in the county. With approximately $105 million in American Rescue Plan Act funds which are encouraged to be used for broadband infrastructure[1], the county is uniquely positioned to pursue this project.

The county intends to build a 125-mile[2] fiber ring connecting each of the 31 municipalities in Summit County. From there, the county intends to allow each municipality to determine whether they wish to expand service further. [3]

Summit county is proposing to spend $35 million on the fiber ring expansion and allocate an additional $25 million for community broadband fiber grants. These grants will serve as important matching funds to allow each locality additional financial resources to pursue connecting their residents.[4]
