Advanced Broadband

County Shape BB.jpg

Warrick County sees broadband as mandatory infrastructure for the 21st Century.  We believe access to advanced broadband is a competitive advantage for our residents, students, and businesses.  It is a a key factor driving future technologies.  In order to bring this connectivity to Warrick County that otherwise might be years away, Warrick County took the proactive step to seek out proposals to build out a county-wide advanced fiber network. 

This network has two main pieces, fiber and wireless.

FIBER BACKBONE PROJECT

FIBER BACKBONE PROJECT - Mainstream Fiber Networks

  • 105 Mile Fiber Backbone

    • Connects every town, school, library, hospital, town hall, and county facilities across Warrick County​

  • Capacity

    • 1 GB residential (non-rural)

    • 10GB in schools and government facilities

    • 100GB in the certain Business Districts

  • Symmetrical  - same upload & download speeds

  • Fiber is considered "future proof" to handle the speed of tomorrow's innovations

  • Fully ringed fiber for reliability and redundancy

  • Fiber to the Home (FTTH) and Fiber to the business (FTTB) provides fiber right into the building and not just to the neighborhood or curb
