HUDSON, OH (October 18, 2022) – The City of Hudson is exploring opportunities for a Public-Private Partnership to provide access to high-speed fiber internet for Hudson residents at no direct cost to the City. To investigate these opportunities in more detail, the City is issuing a Request for Proposal (RFP) to gauge the interest of potential respondents to fund and build additional residential fiber options throughout the City of Hudson. This expansion will extend the value Hudson’s City-owned and operated Velocity Broadband has brought to the business sector of Hudson and provide the same level of service to all residents.

The City owns and operates its own fiber service known as Velocity Broadband. Established in 2015, Velocity launched as a high-speed fiber solution for Hudson businesses. Velocity expanded to include service to residential locations located near the fiber path. There is a significant need for access to high-speed fiber internet to all residential areas of Hudson, Ohio. 

Respondents must be capable of providing all the tasks and meeting all the expectations as described under the Scope of Services and Scope of Project. Maintenance of these capabilities is required until the project is successfully completed.

RFP Scope of Services, Scope of Project, and expectations can be accessed here:
