From the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority's press release:

The Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority is pleased to announce a new initiative with Cincinnati Bell that will deliver high-speed Internet to over 1,200 family members in six CMHA properties.

In partnership with CMHA, Cincinnati Bell’s UniCity Smart City program is now providing free Internet connectivity to the following locations: Marianna Terrace, Ralph Street, and Setty Kuhn. Three additional CMHA locations will be connected by the end of 2021: Beacon Glen, Horizon Hills, and Millvale.

Reducing the digital divide for families is critical in our community and across the country in today’s ever-changing world. High-speed Internet is a key part of strategies to connect individuals and families with access to education, healthcare, and employment resources.

"Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority, in conjunction with its HUD-sponsored Connect Home Initiative, seeks partnerships that provide a foundation to decrease the digital divide," said Gregory D. Johnson, Chief Executive Officer for Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority. "This partnership with Cincinnati Bell does just that, and we are excited to bridge the digital divide for the families and children in these communities."
