What Ashland is working on
The City of Ashland Fiber Network (AFN) started in the late 1990’s with the vision of creating a telecommunications infrastructure that showcases local people, supports local innovators and shares the community’s unique way of living and thinking with the world.
AFN’s mission is to provide Ashland with a public telecommunications utility that creates opportunities and enables our citizens, business and municipal government to thrive as a connected community.
The cities current facilities include: A Headend/Data Center, 119 miles of cable, 40 miles of fiber optic cable, optical amplifiers, power supplies, and other active devices. Today, AFN and its ISP partners continue to provide competitive Internet, Cable TV and Telephony services and high-quality customer service to the local community.
