An event long in the making will take place at Atwood Lake Resort on Thursday, February 28.
At 11 a.m. that day, a ribbon-cutting event will be held to mark the initial deployment of countywide broadband access to the many unserved and underserved homes and businesses in the area. Attending, along with the Board of Commissioners, will be representatives from Agile Networks and CUE Band, members of the Connect Appalachia Broadband Task Force, representatives from Connect Ohio and other community stakeholders.
Agile Networks' and CUE Band's broadband service deployment will help bridge an existing digital divide for Carroll County residents. Currently, more than 2,500 homes and businesses in the area do not have access to high-speed Internet service, and this digital divide has an effect on education, economic development and public safety.
Atwood Lake Resort is located at 2650 Lodge Road SW, Sherrodsville.
