MVCC & Trotwood Fiber Optics Expansion


Trotwood is seeking FEMA funds to tap into a collaborative fiber optics network, a move officials say will help the tornado-damaged city recover with improved communications while expanding the south suburban initiative to northern Dayton area communities.
Trotwood is applying for up to $1.7 million in federal disaster relief after the Memorial Day tornadoes last year for money to hook up to the Miami Valley Communications Council Fiber Network. 
Trotwood’s inclusion into the MVCC’s fiber optics network would extend the 44-mile network by about 50% and provide a further chance for its expansion around Dayton, said council Executive Director Jay Weiskircher.
