Community Impact

COMMUNITY FOCUSED. COMMUNITY PRIDE. COMMUNITY SUPPORT.

Buckeye Broadband has been actively investing in Northwest Ohio communities for more than 50 years. Our employees live, work, and play here, so we believe in taking care of our home towns with the same care we give to our customers. Each year we give through community partnerships with local nonprofit arts, education, and human services organizations, striving to support and further their work and missions.

We do this because we are more than just a technology and digital media company. We are a local company committed to taking care of our customers in Northwest Ohio, Southeast Michigan, and Huron County.

FROM OUR PARTNERS



Music for the Eyes with the Toledo Symphony

Enhancing the concert experience through the use of HD technology makes for a natural partnership between Toledo Symphony Orchestra and Buckeye Broadband. Concert footage is broadcast in reel-time onto large, high-definition screens on either side of the Peristyle stage. The project, called TSO in HD, allows audiences to see inside the orchestra and watch close-ups of the musicians during performances.

"Our orchestra and audiences appreciate the support that Buckeye Broadband contributes to the Toledo Symphony. TSO in HD makes it easier to engage with the music and admire the talents of our incredible musicians. We are honored to partner with Buckeye Broadband in this unique endeavor."

Zak Vassar, President & CEO, Toledo Symphony Orchestra
