State Sen. Leising Invites Residents to Request Rural Broadband Access

Unserved or underserved homeowners or business owners can apply for access through the Indiana Connectivity Program.

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana residents are invited to receive broadband access through the Indiana Connectivity Program.

The program aims to connect residents and businesses that lack access to broadband internet services with service providers and assist in the expense of extending broadband to those locations.

Locations that currently lack broadband service or have actual broadband speeds of less than 100/20 Mbps are eligible.

Owners of residential and business locations unserved or underserved can apply for consideration by entering their information into the Next Level Connections portal to initiate their interest in receiving broadband internet service.

"Reliable broadband access is important in supporting Indiana's business environment and quality of life," Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg) said. "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."

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.
