Butler County commissioners take heat for travel expenses while promoting their fiber system

Butler County commissioners take heat for travel expenses while promoting their fiber system

I ran into these guys while at a fiber to the home meeting in Provo, Utah. Contrary to their opponent's criticism, they were hardly living it up but were working hard to learn how Provo and other local governments were using their fiber systems for economic development.

Meanwhile, the Butler County, Ohio fiber system continues to expand, as noted in another article:

"Fiber with muscle: iFiber set to change the way businesses, residents connect"
