Posey

Broadband Posey County

Mainstream Fiber Networks, alongside Posey County, has received a Next Level Broadband grant from the state of Indiana for over $3.3 million, with a local match of $2.9 million for a combined total of over $6.25 million.

This project will bring broadband connectivity to over 675 unserved households, over 30 businesses, and several anchor institutions. We are honored and excited to be able to help service Posey County with reliable broadband access, as this is the core of our mission: to bring affordable, reliable broadband into unserved or underserved areas.

As we are still in the preliminary stages of this project, information regarding the service route and timelines are not currently available. We will continue to update this page as work progresses, so please, look to this page for future updates.

In the meantime, by joining our Quick Connect List, you will receive updates as service becomes available in your area.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW IS FIBER BROADBAND INSTALLED?

Like other major utilities, construction of a fiber optic network is completed through aerial and underground installment of cable along an engineered route.

WHAT SERVICES WILL BE OFFERED?

Mainstream offers two residential internet speeds and voice services with unlimited usage, simplified billing, and a 100% fiber optic connection delivered directly to each residence. Business Fiber and Dedicated Fiber services will be available to small and large businesses at custom package offerings.

HOW MUCH DOES THE SERVICE COST?

Our Unleashed and Unlimited plan offers 1 Gpbs for $69.95, and our Choice Unlimited plan offers 50 mbps for $49.95 a month. Both plans have no additional fees and locked monthly rates for the full term of the contract. For more details on our service plans, our Residential Services page.

WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH THE INSTALLATION COST?

Current standard installation with Mainstream is $200.00.  During the installation, an installation technician runs a fiber cable from the mainline directly to the side of your home. Equipment is then placed, specifically, a Network Interface Device (NID) is put on the exterior of the residence, and is connected to a Wi-Fi router that is placed inside the house.

HOW RELIABLE IS THE SERVICE? IS IT AFFECTED BY WEATHER?

Fiber optic service is the most reliable type of internet service available because the cables are often on the same poles as your electrical wires, or they are buried underground, meaning that so long as you have electricity, you should have service. Typically the service is only interrupted by a true break in the cable or regular network upgrades.

WHAT SPEEDS ARE OFFERED WITH MAINSTREAM’S SERVICE?

We have simplified the buying process by offering two speeds; 50 mbps download/50 mbps upload and 1 Gbps download/1 Gbps upload.

WHAT IF I AM IN AGREEMENT WITH ANOTHER SERVICE?

If service is available in your area, Mainstream will buy out your existing service agreement up to a set amount, making the switch easier.

ARE THERE DATA CAPS OR LIMITS?

No. All of Mainstream’s plans include unlimited data. There are no caps or throttling. You are simply selecting the speeds that you require.

WHO PAYS FOR INSTALLATION TO MY HOME OR BUSINESS?

As part of the partnership project and future expansions, Mainstream covers the cost of construction for installing the mainline fiber cables in your neighborhood zone. You are then responsible for the cost of installation from the mainline cable to your home, this is included in the standard installation cost.

WILL I NEED TO PURCHASE ANY EQUIPMENT?

All equipment to get the service into your home is provided by and warranted through Mainstream Fiber Networks. However, if you would like additional Wi-Fi coverage or other options, you would need to purchase separate equipment. We offer a managed Wi-Fi option for $14.95 per month that includes a Wi-Fi router fully managed and supported by Mainstream. You can also bring your own router for no additional charge. Visit our Residential Services page for more information.
