"The Agile Network" is engineered to fulfill the stringent safety specifications required by the U.S. national public safety standards, as well as local and statewide constituencies. The network supports vital communications for emergency first responders, makes fiber grade service and carrier-class reliability available to more than three million locations in Ohio’s metro and rural markets, and also enables economic growth in regions serving previously deprived markets.
