WARSAW — CenturyLink, Inc. announced today that it has expanded broadband to approximately 18,000 rural homes and businesses in Indiana as part of the company’s commitment to bring high-speed internet to more Americans.
Expanded broadband service is now available in more than 25 Indiana communities, including Warsaw, Franklin and Rising Sun (complete list of communities below), thanks to CenturyLink’s participation in the Federal Communications Commission’s Connect America Fund.
“We know broadband brings many benefits to communities, including better access to jobs, education and healthcare services,” said Tim White, CenturyLink vice president of operations. “That’s why we’ve worked hard to expand broadband to more homes and businesses in Indiana.”
In August 2015, CenturyLink accepted CAF II funding, to be received over six years, from the FCC and committed to bring broadband with download speeds of at least 10 Mbps to approximately 30,000 locations in FCC-designated, high-cost census blocks in Indiana.
To date, CenturyLink has successfully enabled approximately 18,000 locations, or more than 60 percent of the total committed locations, in Indiana over the last three years, meeting its year-end 2018 CAF enablement goal in the state.
CenturyLink has already enabled broadband to approximately 750,000 homes and businesses nationwide across rural America over the last three years in conjunction with the CAF program.
Depending on location, a variety of speeds may be available. Customers can order service or check service availability in their area by calling CenturyLink at (877) 862-9343 or visiting https://www.centurylink.com/ordernow/
