Another county joins broadband ready effort
Another Indiana county has been designated as a Broadband Ready Community, meaning it has removed barriers to make it easier for telecom companies to make broadband infrastructure investments. Henry County is the 76th location to receive the certification.
It received the designation from the Indiana Broadband Office and the Office of Community and Rural Affairs after county commissioners adopted a broadband ready ordinance.
“Broadband and connectivity are imperative to the economic vitality and quality of life in Indiana communities. We are encouraged by the efforts of our broadband ready communities,” said OCRA Executive Director Denny Spinner.
The broadband ready initiative was launched in July 2020. Click here to learn more about the process.
