I hope you’re enjoying the early days of spring. As always, our team keeps busy year-round working the hallways of the Ohio Statehouse and investing in communities across the state.
We’re happy to share an update about regulatory reform that we’d been pursuing at the Capitol. In 2018, HB 402 passed, which updated Ohio law to reflect how our customers are communicating today. Signed by the governor, this bill ensures that Ohio can compete with neighboring states for communications investments and maintain important consumer protections.
In addition, we’ve seen a lot of progress in either planning for or deploying small cell technology in Ohio’s cities and towns. As you know, this kind of technology is key to laying the foundation for 5G and improved connectivity that benefits health care, education, public safety and business growth. Columbus, Parma and Akron, in particular, have made great strides by working collaboratively with us on small cell deployment efforts. If you’d like to learn more about how your community can do the same, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
And, finally, as you’ll read more about below, it’s been rewarding recently for AT&T Ohio to be engaged in various hackathons in the Buckeye State. We truly enjoy playing a role in efforts that benefit our young people and their future careers.
Thank you for your ongoing support of AT&T.
President — AT&T Ohio and Great Lakes States
