Appalachian Ohio-West Virginia Connectivity Summit

Workshop: 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Washington State Community College

Town Hall: 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Marietta High School


In the rural communities of southeast Ohio and northern West Virginia, nearly one-fourth of the population – 14.5 million people – lacks access to high-speed Internet service, according to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). This is unacceptable in an era when broadband plays a key role in our jobs, education, health care and social connections.

The Appalachian Ohio-West Virginia Connectivity Summit is bringing together key players from across the country to brainstorm strategies for bringing broadband access to our rural communities.

Activities will include a day of workshops and panel discussions at Washington State Community College, then an evening town hall meeting at Marietta High School. Please register here if you plan to attend either event.
