"The plaintiffs volunteer in our schools, worship beside us in our

right thing to do."

- Justice John M. Greaney, in a concurring opinion in the Supreme

Fiber optic Internet comes to Cleveland

This ought to boost the city in interesting new ways. Cleveland rocks.

"OneCleveland recently gained rights to nearly 400 miles of fiber optic cable that extends from Garfield Heights to Westlake and from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport to Lake Erie. About 200 miles of fiber was donated to Case Western Reserve University, which in turn gave it to OneCleveland, by City Signal Communications, a company in Malvern, Pa., that owns five fiber rings in Greater Cleveland. OneCleveland bought from City Signal the rights to the remaining fiber for an undisclosed amount."
