Ohio Wi-Fi Hotspot Locations

Through BroadbandOhio – the state’s office dedicated to improving access to high-speed internet – we have been working with providers to find public hotspot locations that Ohioans can use in areas where they may not otherwise have access to internet from home.

Providers not currently listed that are offering public wi-fi hotspots are encouraged to email together@governor.ohio.gov with contact information and a representative from BroadbandOhio will follow-up.
