altafiber and Boone County are proud to announce that fiber-enabled, high-speed public Wi-Fi will be available in multiple parks and recreation locations throughout Boone County and in partnership with the Cities of Florence, Walton and Union as part of Boone County’s broader effort to support economic growth and provide an outstanding experience for residents and visitors.
One of the true gems of the “Gem City” is Dayton Children’s Hospital, a not-for-profit pediatric care provider and leading advocate for children in the Dayton region. With a history of innovation spanning more than a half-century, Dayton Children’s recently turned to altafiber to help it better meet the needs of today’s tech-savvy parents.
“The parents of our children are part of the millennial and Gen Z generations, and they are digital natives,” said Debbie Feldman, president and CEO of Dayton Children’s. “They want to be able to support their children’s health in a digital way. They want to be able to make an appointment at 10 at night when they finally have a chance to take a breath after their children are in bed. They want to be able to track their children’s health through the use of wearables and other kinds of technology. All of these technologies and new digital approaches are going to be instrumental to how we care for children in the future and how we monitor their health.”

We are all in this together. As individuals, families, and businesses have all had to adjust quickly and cope with the effects of Covid-19, the impact has been hard on our world and community, to say the least. Essentially, life as we know it has changed dramatically in less than a month’s time, making it nearly impossible to find one individual in our community that has not been impacted. At altafiber, we want you to know that we’re here for you and are working hard to find ways to help.
The “office” environment has changed dramatically in a very short time due to COVID-19. Most businesses had to quickly adapt to shifting their workforce immediately and have their employees start working remotely. With such a sudden change, this left many businesses asking themselves if their employees have the right tools to stay productive while remote.
