New regional provider Omni Fiber has announced that it will bring FTTP broadband to the Ohio communities of Clyde, Dover and Shelby. They are the service provider’s initial markets in the state.
Work has begun in Clyde and is scheduled to begin later this month in the other two communities. It will be done in phases and take several months to complete, with installations beginning in the fall. No-obligation pre-ordering now is available.
“Omni Fiber is committed to serving the residents of small and mid-size towns across the Midwest with high-speed connectivity as quickly as possible,” Darrick Zucco, the CEO of Omni Fiber, said in a press release about the Omni Fiber Ohio plans. “We recognize that fast, reliable service is no longer a luxury but a necessity for all Americans, and our company is proud to partner with the cities of Clyde, Dover, and Shelby to provide critical infrastructure for its residents and businesses.”
Subscribers will have access to symmetrical data speeds as fast as 2 Gbps, linear and streaming video, phone services, Wi-Fi and sales and customer service based in Ohio.
Additional launches will be announced soon, the company says.
Omni Fiber’s goal is to serve historically underserved markets. Its formation was announced last month. The driver is a commitment of $250 million from Oak Hill Capital Partners VI, which Oak Hill Capital calls its flagship fund. The firm is active in the telecommunications industry with investments in MetroNet and Vexus (which merged) and Race Communications, an FTTP operator with a focus on California.
Omni also plans to serve Pennsylvania and Michigan.
