The Indiana Broadband Office has designated Tipton County as an official Broadband Ready Community. The Broadband Ready Communities Program was created as a tool to encourage broadband development throughout the Hoosier State.
The certification was approved following the Tipton County Commissioners adoption of a Broadband Ready Community ordinance.
“The Tipton County Commissioners are committed to encouraging development of widespread access to Broadband Connectivity in our community,” said Tipton County Commissioner Dennis Henderson. “We are partnering with the Indiana Broadband Ready Community initiative through the State of Indiana to help facilitate bringing these needed services throughout our community.”
The office says the certification is a sign that the community has taken steps to reduce barriers to broadband infrastructure investment.
“Communities throughout the state are prioritizing connectivity and investment, including the leaders of Tipton County,” said Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch. “We recognize the hard work you’ve put in yourselves and look forward to you continuing your work to attract this crucial infrastructure to your community.”
