From Akron.com: 

 The Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority (AMHA) and Building For Tomorrow’s ConnectHome Akron Initiative is bringing internet service to underserved communities through high-speed community Wi-Fi zones.

According to AMHA officials, the Wi-Fi Zones will give residents in AMHA public housing full access to quality wireless internet service in their residential units. Previously, residents could access free Wi-Fi in common areas only.

ConnectHome Akron, a partnership among AMHA’s nonprofit subsidiary Building for Tomorrow, AMHA and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, has worked to tackle the digital divide in Summit County since 2017, AMHA officials noted. In 2019, Building for Tomorrow added digital inclusion to its funding priority areas, indicating a sustained commitment to enhancing digital inclusion efforts in AMHA housing programs.
