Background

Covington Connect is an aggressive effort to smash the digital divide in Covington by expanding access to free public Wi-Fi throughout much of the City.

Covington Connect is a collaborative effort involving the City of Covington, Cincinnati Bell, the Housing Authority of Covington (HAC), Covington Independent Public Schools, Renaissance Covington, local computer firms Blair Technology Group and ReGadget, and Comp-U-Dopt, a Houston-based non-profit organization.

Phase I of the project began in 2018 with setting up 22 Wi-Fi hotspots that created zones of connectivity in the downtown area.

Phase II of the project began in September 2020, and added 124 Wi-Fi hotspots. These are concentrated in neighborhoods where the most Covington students live – Eastside, Helentown, Austinburg, Peaselburg, Lewisburg, Latonia, and West Covington.
