The city has announced that additional addresses along the existing city-owned and operated fiber line are now eligible to sign up for Velocity Broadband internet and phone service.

The goal of Velocity Broadband is to enable connectivity and commerce at unparalleled speeds. Those interested in signing up for service are invited to visit www.HudsonVelocity.com to determine if a location is within the target fiber line areas. Installations will be implemented in waves according to predetermined zones in the coming months. Details on timing of installations are not yet available, however updates will be provided as details are finalized.

If you are interested in this coming service, a sign-up form is available on the website or call 330-342-9544 for more information.

City Council also passed legislation March 5 that places Velocity Broadband into an enterprise fund. In governmental accounting, an enterprise fund is a fund that provides goods or services for a fee that makes the goods or services self-supporting. This also provides additional transparency as it separates the financial results of Velocity Broadband from other city operations.
