The Ohio Mid-Eastern Governments Association (OMEGA) is requesting proposals to conduct a Regional Broadband Feasibility Study for the OMEGA region which includes ten counties: Belmont, Carroll, Columbiana, Coshocton, Guernsey, Harrison, Holmes, Jefferson, Muskingum, and Tuscarawas Counties in Eastern Appalachian Ohio. The purpose of this study is to develop short-term and long-term strategies for broadband expansion throughout the region. The pandemic has exacerbated the need for reliable, affordable high-speed broadband especially for remote learning, telework, telehealth, and e-commerce. This study is being funded through a grant from the US Economic Development Administration (EDA).
