Mainstream Fiber Network Project for Floyd County
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 Networks have received a $2 million Next Level Broadband grant with a local match of more than $2.1 million to expand throughout Floyd County. This will fund a project that will serve approximately 2,084 unserved households and 389 unserved businesses in Floyd County.
How is Fiber Installed? Like other major utilities, construction of a fiber optic network is completed through aerial and underground installment of cable along an engineered route.
