The Oregon District Business Association and Cincinnati Bell are partnering to bring free public WiFi to the Oregon District through the implementation of a “Smart City solution.” Cincinnati Bell is donating the service to the district, including the installation of fiber for WiFi service along Fifth Street between Patterson Boulevard and Wayne Avenue, plus analytics software to support area businesses. The Smart City solution also will enhance safety initiatives by installing security cameras throughout the Oregon District, including parking lots and alleys.
Oregon District Business Association president Kyle Babirad told the Dayton Business Journal that “The importance of connectivity within the Oregon District cannot be overstated. Cincinnati Bell’s work with us improves our ability to connect with each other and with the broader Dayton community.” Installation of the new Smart City services is expected to be completed in two or three months.
