Mainstream Awarded Grants to Expand Service in Floyd & Benton Counties

On Thursday, November 21, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb announced the awarding of $6.3 million in grants to expand broadband service to Benton, Floyd, and Jackson Counties. The grants are part of the $100 million Next Level Broadband program administered by the state. These projects will bring service to over 5,000 unserved households and close to 1,000 unserved businesses.

Mainstream Fiber is honored and excited to be the recipients of the awards to help service Benton & Floyd Counties with reliable broadband access. This is the core of our mission: to bring affordable, reliable broadband service into underserved areas.

As we are in the very preliminary stages of this project, information regarding the service route and timeline is not currently available. We will continue to update the Benton & Floyd County pages of our website as our work progresses.

  1. I live at 8837 Banet Rd, Floyds Knobs. There are a few if us that gave had signs in our yards for several months. It would be great if you could sand out a flyer to our area. We need another option for internet here. Our neighbors do nit understand they need to sign up in order for you to come here. I am sure you would have several sign up for your service in our area if your service was available.

  2. I also live on Banet Road and am interested in other options for faster internet service. I filled out the form months ago for Mainstream but have not heard anything back. I went to the Lanesville picnic and spoke to one of the people at their booth. The girl showed very little interest in our area so I walked away. I would consider us in a very underserved area at this point and hope we have more than one option coming.

  3. I live on Balmer Fenwick Road in Floyds Knobs and work from home. Our internet options are limited and not reliable. The lack of quality high-speed internet is even more pronounced now that my kids are trying to do elearning for school.

  4. We moved to Floyd county over 18 yrs ago ,to the NW end of Pekin Rd in Greenville and have been told every year “maybe next year” I hope Mainstream can make it happen for us soon.

  5. Have already a sign in my front yard. Working from home a lot of times and need High Speed Internet to be productive. Living in Lanesville on the Floyd County side on Smith Creek Road. Would love for you to make this happen
