Possible Internet Grant Funding for Warrick County

Monday, April 15, 2019

ATTENTION WARRICK COUNTY, INDIANA RESIDENTS!  If you’re internet is slow or seems ‘non-existent’, please take 5 minutes and help us make our case for potential broadbrand grant funding to improve service to rural and underserved parts of Warrick County. 

WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW. Warrick County is excited to have a 105-mile advanced broadband fiber backbone project secured and kicking off in 2019.  Warrick County, Mainstream Fiber and River City Wireless are pursuing recently announced state rural broadband grant funds that will allow us to expand the fiber broadband infrastructure construction and wireless connection that is already planned.  This will help it reach additional underserved residents in our county
