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.
