News: Council Postpones Vote on Community-Wide Internet
Hudson is exploring the viability of a City-owned and operated community-wide fiber-optic internet network that would provide all Hudson residents with access to affordable high-speed internet. Hudson City Council had discussed placing an issue on the November 2018 ballot. On May 22, Hudson City Council postponed a Council vote to put the community-wide fiber initiative on the ballot. The Council vote is postponed until late November to provide time to establish a committee and for Council to continue their review. The initiative will not be on the November 2018 ballot.
For more information, visit Community-Wide Fiber on the main City of Hudson website.

We are very pleased with Velocity's gigabit broadband service in our new Hudson, Ohio location. We increased our downstream bandwidth by more than 10x on average and our upstream by more than 100x at about the same price we were paying before for Time Warner's Business Class service. Of course, speed is of limited value without reliability. We have been using Velocity Broadband for more than three months now, and the reliability has been excellent so far.Managing Director at Informediate Mark D. Kaucic
