“As thousands of miles of fiber is laid to connect Ohioans across the state with reliable, high-speed internet access, having a stable and highly skilled workforce remains of critical importance to our broadband cable providers. Through significant investments, Ohio continues to see great growth in broadband connectivity and speeds, strengthening a vital part of our state’s infrastructure.
“The OCTA – Ohio’s Broadband and Cable Association commends Lt. Governor Jon Husted and the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation for their foresight and understanding of our industry’s unique needs. Building a strong, technologically advanced team of Ohioans who are trained to support broadband expansion is key to accelerating our work to get all Ohioans connected to quality service.”
