Broadband info being sought

from State Senator Jean Leising

Request Rural Broadband Access
According to the 2022 Indiana Broadband Performance Trends data, more than 200,000 Indiana locations have no high-speed internet service, and more than 100,000 locations are underserved.  
To help alleviate this, the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs is inviting residents to apply to get broadband access through the Indiana Connectivity Program.  

Unserved or underserved homeowners or business owners can apply by creating an account for the Next Level Connections portal and entering their information for consideration in receiving broadband service. Eligible residents can also register by phone at 833-639-8522 or by mail at Indiana Broadband Connect Center, The Office of Community and Rural Affairs, 1 N. Capitol Ave., Suite 600, Indianapolis, IN 46204.

Internet service providers will review locations listed in applications and submit bids to the state. The state will evaluate bids and make awards to providers whose bid presents the lowest cost per Mbps to the state for extension of the service.

Reliable broadband access is important in supporting Indiana’s business environment and quality of life. The state continuously invests in local projects to improve internet access for Indiana families and keep pace with the demands of technology. If you are unserved or underserved in broadband access, I strongly encourage you to apply for consideration.
