GigabitNow Chosen as ISP for Three Indiana Cities – Inside INdiana Business


Seattle-based Internet service provider GigabitNow has announced plans to use the Hoosier Networks LLC fiber network to provide high-speed Internet access to the cities of Bloomington, Columbus and Shelbyville. GigabitNow says its services will cover at least 70,000 homes and businesses in the three cities.

Fiber-based internet service is expected to be available to first-stage Bloomington residents by January, and final-stage residents will receive access by the first quarter of 2025. GigabitNow says residents of Columbus and of Shelbyville can enroll in the service early next year, with the final phase of residents receiving services by the end of 2024.

“As a leader in home and business Internet connectivity for more than 25 years, we are excited to expand our gigabit fiber optic Internet services in the State of Indiana,” said Stephen Milton, CEO of GigabitNow. . “GigabitNow delivers fast, symmetrical internet speeds, with no data caps, long-term contracts or privacy concerns, all with unparalleled customer service. We look forward to partnering with the communities of Bloomington, Columbus and Shelbyville to provide that same exceptional service and customer experience. »

Last month, Paris-based infrastructure company Meridiam announced plans to build fiber-optic broadband infrastructure in every city. Hoosier Networks, the fiber network utility provider established by Meridiam, plans to invest more than $90 million in the project.

“We are thrilled to partner with GigabitNow and these Hoosier municipalities to deliver better and faster fiber optic connectivity, which will foster greater economic, educational and entrepreneurial opportunities in the future,” said Nicolas Rubio, CEO of Meridiam Americas. “This announcement is further proof of our commitment to closing critical fiber infrastructure gaps and helping to bridge the digital divide.”

The company says residents will be offered multiple plan choices at different price points and internet speeds.
