Hillsboro Introduces HiLight

High-Speed Internet Service Built for Our Community

Post Date:03/19/2019

HiLight LogoThe City of Hillsboro is taking the next step to provide internet service for the entire Hillsboro community by announcing the name and values of the service.

What does HiLight represent?

“Hi” represents Hillsboro and the communication opportunities the internet provides to connect our community members. “Light” is a nod to the fiber optic technology that will connect our customers to gigabit speeds.

HiLight’s logo color and style complement the City of Hillsboro logo with a clean and straightforward font. “Hi” is in a speech-bubble shape — sending a friendly "hello" to the City. The shape also represents a location pin. The logo’s tight letter spacing symbolizes the closeness of our Hillsboro community.

What will HiLight offer?

In addition to creating the HiLight name and logo, the City identified the core values that will define the HiLight customer experience.

Build community. 

The City's affordable high-speed internet will create a stronger, better Hillsboro by giving more residents an opportunity to connect. 

Create opportunity. 

Access to essential resources such as education, jobs, and housing, will create opportunities that improve lives and brighten Hillsboro’s future. 

Keep it simple. 

HiLight will provide straightforward and honest service for our residents and businesses. 

Live equity. 

The City will respond to internet access barriers by offering fast and reliable service at affordable rates. 

Serve the City we love.

HiLight will listen to our customers’ needs and offer quality high-speed access with the excellent customer service that the community expects from the City of Hillsboro.  

When will HiLight service be available to customers?

HiLight is scheduled to launch in two areas this winter, starting with South Hillsboro. The Shute Park/Southwest Hillsboro neighborhood will be next.
