The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded OARnet a planning grant to develop a network of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) training and research resources for smaller higher education institutions in the state of Ohio.

The 2020-2021 OARnet Annual Report is now available online. Learn about how years of strategic investment meant that OARnet was fully prepared to respond as broadband became a critical lifeline for Ohio’s education, research, health care, public broadcasting and government communities.

Through a public-private partnership supported by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Lt. Governor Jon Husted, OARnet is helping provide East Cleveland residents access to reliable, low-cost high-speed internet. 

Ohio's Allen Township will be the site of a pilot for the Starlink satellite broadband service developed by SpaceX to connect households and small businesses with high-speed internet access. The pilot is part of the DeWine-Husted Administration’s commitment to bringing high-speed internet access to Ohioans.

OARnet is committed to maintaining our high standard of quality service during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please visit our updates page for additional details.
