OBEN internet service discontinued
spacer image

The University of Akron and Time Warner Cable (TWC) are discontinuing the Ohio Broadband Education Network (OBEN) internet service as of August 31, 2012. New signups and renewals will be halted on July 1, 2012. When your current OBEN services ends, each user will need to transition to TWC Road Runner or to other internet services of their choice.

We encourage all current OBEN users to transfer to their new internet provider by August 1. Information Technology Services will work with the existing customer base to provide direction and assistance as necessary.

OBEN is not broadly used by students, faculty and staff; in fact demand for the service is actually dropping. OBEN internet service was established in 2000. It was an initiative that never fully materialized or reached its projected potential. Today, the internet is available from many different providers with possible bundling with cable TV and phone services. Additionally, the internet is available for many different devices and is free at many locations.

The University has subsidized the OBEN service for our students, faculty, and staff by being the administrator and advocate to TWC since its inception. OBEN administration has become very difficult as TWC has continually made business process changes. Therefore, continuing to provide this function and service is no longer feasible or affordable.

More details are available one the OBEN Transition website, http://www.uakron.edu/projects/oben-transition/index.dot, including answers to Frequently Asked Questions, http://www.uakron.edu/projects/oben-transition/faq.dot.

If you have additional questions or need assistance, please call 330.972.6860 or contact the transition team at OBEN@uakron.edu.
