Ellettsville-based Smithville Fiber is continuing to expand its high-speed Internet service in southern Indiana. The company says it has invested nearly $250,000 to upgrade its broadband network, serving businesses and government offices in downtown Nashville.
Cullen McCarty, president of Smithville Telecom, says the expansion to bring gigabit connectivity should send a clear message to businesses and companies considering the possibility of expanding to the Brown County town.
"Since first offering our premier business fiber service in Nashville back in 2012, we have been making additional investments in our growing network," said McCarty. “We now are actively serving a number of businesses and non-profits in the area with high-speed fiber and look forward to continuing to expand there."
Smithville says it recently completed its state-of-the-art fiber ring network throughout the state, which will increase its commercial service capacity to more than 100 gigabits. In August, the company detailed a $500,000 plan to expand its high-speed fiber service in Ellettsville.
