Siklu Radios Connect the Unconnected Cleveland, Ohio

Cleveland

Civic organization Digital C has been working to bridge the digital divide and “Connect the Unconnected” in Cleveland, a city where over 30% of residents have no access to the Internet. In addition to connectivity, recipients are also provided with the opportunity to complete a basic digital literacy training course, teaching the fundamentals of computer and internet use, after which they receive a refurbished computer to utilize at home.

The main challenge was to provide high-speed broadband connections with no fiber infrastructure to the buildings. 156 public housing units and a homeless shelter were connected with Siklu mmWave Point-to-Point radios, with each location receiving 1-3 Gigabit throughput.
