Howard & Tipton Counties, you’re fiber ready!

Readers of our blog know that we are committed to bringing fast, always-on connectivity to all parts of Indiana and to closing the digital divide between urban and rural businesses in the state. As part of that effort, IFN has enabled fiber-ready sites in many Indiana communities for businesses to tap into. We will be highlighting these areas during the coming weeks to show rural Indiana business owners that high-speed connectivity is not just a big-city amenity.

The first fiber-ready sites we want to highlight are in the Kokomo area. We have assisted in preparing three fiber-ready sites with low-cost, high-bandwidth internet services in Howard and Tipton Counties. With sites spread across two counties, IFN can increase access to high-speed, reliable broadband for area businesses to tap into. There are roughly 1,200 buildings located near IFN’s fiber-optic backbone in Howard and Tipton counties.

The following locations in Howard and Tipton Counties are fiber-optic ready:

  • ·       Lincoln Business Park, located one-half mile east of U.S. 31 on Lincoln Rd, Kokomo, IN 46902
  • ·       The former GM Delco Plant, located at 2276 E Lincoln Rd, Kokomo, IN 46902
  • ·       The intersection of State Road 28 and U.S. 31 in Tipton, IN 46072

“We are focused on helping businesses in Kokomo and the Howard County area flourish,” said Charlie Sparks, President and CEO of the Greater Kokomo Economic Development Alliance. “Connecting multiple developing sites via IFN’s fiber allows us to enhance the region’s economic potential. This not only strengthens our service to existing businesses, it also positions us better to attract new business opportunities. We’re excited to be able to provide this service to our current and future employers with the help of IFN.”
