Northwestern Indiana Telephone Co. is planning to build a high-speed fiber broadband network in the Newton County town of Morocco this spring. NITCO says the network will replace the existing cable system as well as upgrade the networking to provide gigabit speeds to every resident in the community.
The town’s existing cable network serves about 125 customers. NITCO says the new network will serve nearly 500 homes and businesses.
NITCO Vice Presidents Eric Galbreath and Tom Carroll met with the Town Plan Commission earlier this week to announce the project.
“Building fiber broadband networks for residential and business customers in northwest Indiana is our number one goal for 2022 and beyond,” said NITCO President Tom Long. “We are very pleased that the Town of Morocco supports and encourages the creation of the first gigabit community in Newton County!”
NITCO says the project will be its first gigabit community and the first fully-fibered community in the county.
