Ohio-only Bandwidth

In recent years, Cedarville University has also utilized "Ohio-only" bandwidth. This bandwidth is available for traffic between participating Ohio institutions of higher education (all of the state universities and 90% of the private institutions) and "peering" traffic arranged by OARnet (Google, Netflix, and others).
