The city of Dublin is launching a partnership with altafiber, formerly known as Cincinnati Bell, to become the “most connected city in the U.S.” The goal is to provide every home in the city with access to ultra-high-speed fiber connectivity.

Altafiber, which serves Greater Cincinnati, was chosen among seven vendors to provide all Dublin residents with access to internet speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second (Gbps). That’s about 100 times faster than the nation’s average speed of just over 119 megabits per second (Mbps), according to

The city says the contract will cost the city about $6 million to help bury the cable. Altafiber is spending about $35 million over the next several years for the project.
