A History of Innovation, Growth, Dedication & Commitment 

Horizon began in 1895 as an incumbent local exchange carrier. Over the next century, the company grew into a technological leader, providing the latest in innovation throughout the Midwest.

Today, Horizon is a true fiber optic network partner. Across Ohio, the Midwest and beyond, Horizon is a 100 percent fiber optic provider that offers both customizable fiber options and dependable service for customers in major metro regions and rural or hard-to-reach areas. 

Beginning with the construction of the Southern Ohio Health Care Network in 2009, Horizon Network Partners built a network that would connect nearly 140 healthcare facilities. In the summer of 2010, Horizon expanded its fiber network throughout Ohio and surrounding states expanding broadband opportunities for healthcare, educational, business and governmental facilities as well as cellular towers and data centers.
