High-speed Internet access the focus of Town Hall Ohio

For Immediate Release

April 13, 2010

COLUMBUS, Ohio (OFBF) – Efforts to expand broadband Internet access across the Buckeye State will be discussed on this week’s episode of Town Hall Ohio.

While the use of high-speed Internet has become second nature to many Ohioans, a significant portion of the state still does not have access to it.  Furthermore, many people who do live in areas with broadband access have chosen not to use it.

Tom Fritz, executive director of the Connect Ohio initiative, and Chris Henney, Ohio Farm Bureau director of legislative relations, discuss efforts to expand the availability of broadband Internet access as well as the significant benefits the service provides to both individuals and businesses.

Town Hall Ohio is a weekly public affairs discussion program produced by the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation with the financial support of Nationwide Insurance.  Programs are available for download at www.townhallohio.org.
