Mainstream Fiber, alongside Warrick County Economic Development, is in the preliminary stages of a milestone fiber optic broadband project to provide 100% fiber optic internet services for homes and businesses throughout the county. The route, starting in 2019, will encompass over 100 miles of mainline fiber optic cable and support future service expansions into surrounding areas. The milestone infrastructure project is a dual partnership of Mainstream Fiber Networks and Warrick County.
This map is provided to the public for informational purposes only and shows the initial phases of this project. Mainline service route is subject to change based on various project requirements. The map will be updated as the project progresses, changes are made, and expansion areas added based on community interest.

The initial phase of the project, scheduled to start in 2019, will service homes and businesses along the mainline route as the infrastructure is built, tested, and ready to be installed to customers. Mainstream will also be considering expansion areas based on community interest as the project progresses and more fiber is installed. Learn more about our expansion process.

The project, beginning in 2019, will encompass over 100 miles of mainline fiber optic cable and support future service expansions into surrounding areas.

During 2019, a local office will become available for community questions and service support.
Both Mainstream and Warrick County will be contributing funds to the project’s completion. Mainstream is responsible for the completed full network construction prior to being partially reimbursed at the conclusion of the project. No future taxes or fees will be used in funding.

Like other major utilities, construction of a fiber optic network is completed through aerial and underground installment of cable along an engineered route. Equipment and construction teams will be located throughout the county while building the new resource. Fiber must be tested and equipped before being activated for customers, so newly installed fiber is not immediately ready to be installed to homes and businesses.
The initial phase of the project will service homes and businesses along the mainline route as the infrastructure is built, tested, and ready to be installed to customers. Mainstream will also be considering expansion areas based on community interest as the project progresses and more fiber is installed. Main towns and critical access businesses, such as schools and hospitals, are included along the primary route to connect priority community locations.
Fiber must be tested and equipped before being activated for customers, so newly installed fiber is not immediately ready to be installed to homes and businesses. Staying informed is critical to know when service will be immediately available in your area or the next steps to being connected.
Areas not shown on the initial route will continue to be considered for expansion based on community demand. Neighborhoods who show the most engagement by joining Mainstream’s request list with high participation will be considered for service first. Additional information to be provided.
Mainstream offers multiple residential internet speeds and voice services with unlimited usage, simplified billing, and a 100% fiber optic connection delivered directly to each residence. Speeds will start at 100mbps and range up to 1GB. See msfiber.net for comparable service offers. Business Fiber and Dedicated Business Fiber services will be available to small and large businesses at custom package offerings.
Basic internet service through Mainstream currently starts at $59.95/month with no additional fees and a locked monthly rate for the full term of the contract. For comparable service offerings, visit our residential service page. Service updates will follow.
Current standard installation with Mainstream is $200.00. An installation technician runs fiber cable from the mainline directly to the side of the home. Provided equipment is then placed: Network Interface Device (NID) on the exterior of the residence, Wi-Fi router, and 8-hour battery back up (to be used in the event of a power outage).
Fiber optic service is the most reliable type of internet service available because the cables are often on the same poles, or underground, with your electrical wires. You should have service if you have electricity. Typically the service is only interrupted by a true break in the cable or regular network upgrades.
Mainstream currently offers four residential fiber internet download speeds: 100mbps, 250mbps, 500mbps, and 1Gb. Visit our residential service page for additional information.
When service becomes available in your area, Mainstream will buy out your existing service agreement up to a set amount. Contract buy out options are available.
No. All of Mainstream’s plans include unlimited data. There are no caps or throttling. You are simply selecting the speeds you need.
As part of the partnership project and future expansions, Mainstream covers the cost of construction for installing the mainline fiber cables in your neighborhood zone. You are then responsible for the cost of installation from the mainline cable to your home. This is included in the standard installation cost.
All equipment to get the service into your home is provided by and warranted through Mainstream. However, if you would like additional Wi-Fi coverage or other options, you would need to purchase separate equipment.
