[ARCHIVED] Time Flies at Gigabit Speeds for Hudson


HUDSON, Ohio (September 29, 2016) – They say time flies when you’re having fun. It also flies when you’re a progressive city. A year ago, the City of Hudson launched Velocity Broadband and began rolling it out to area businesses, making Hudson the first Gigabit City in Northeast Ohio. With fiber in place for more than three-quarters of the City, it’s time to celebrate a year of achievements.

“It’s a huge accomplishment that we’ve been able to work so quickly to provide businesses with the connection speeds and reliability they’ve been asking for,” said Jim Stifler, Economic Development Director. “As we mark our one-year anniversary, we’re celebrating what got us here and looking forward to even more progress as we lead the way as an intelligent, progressive City.”

As part of the celebration, Hudson residents, businesses and visitors will find chalk art around town commemorating the anniversary and the clock tower will light up to reveal a special message. With local advertisements placed and an appreciation breakfast on September 29 for the businesses who were willing and eager to be early adopters of this innovative new service, we want to thank everyone who helped Hudson achieve this one-year anniversary milestone.

Velocity Broadband pushed the City into uncharted territory, but it was because of Hudson’s commitment to economic development that the idea to offer City-owned broadband service became a reality. For connected businesses, Velocity Broadband offers:

• Fast upload and download speeds
• Greater reliability and reduced downtime
• Less buffering while streaming
• Larger bandwidth to handle high traffic
• At comparable costs to other services

Showing no signs of slowing down, next up for Velocity Broadband is continuing to connect Hudson business in the downtown, in the Georgetown Road area and other parts of the City. To sign up for Velocity Broadband or to learn more, visit
