Fiber Buildout

What is Fiber and Why is it better?

Fiber is a medium that provides Internet service to your home and business at speeds much faster than traditional copper-based technologies. With fiber, data travels to you as light over strands of glass. Tops speeds can reach 1000 Mbps (1Gbps).


With fiber technology, TeleMedia can bring you speeds of up to 1 Gigabit per second (that’s 1000 Megabit per second!)


It doesn’t matter if you live down a 5-mile driveway, fiber will go the distance and bring you the speeds you need!


Because fiber isn’t conductive, electrical storms are far less likely to cause issues.


How will TeleMedia bring the service to my home or business?

Fiber service requires that TeleMedia construct a whole new network for your Internet service to traverse. TeleMedia typically buries its network (instead of stringing it on electric poles), as this provides much more resilience to inclement weather, ice, and accidents. Because the fiber will be buried, TeleMedia contractors will trench or bore through state and county right-of-way areas to bring the fiber to you.


TeleMedia Fiber Buildout Information

In the spring of 2020, TeleMedia broke ground on a large fiber build that would cover 900 member homes in the service area, and an additional 350 homes in Starlight Indiana. Shortly after, we contacted members to both disburse and gather information. The build would continue in 2021, connecting an additional 850 member homes in the serving area. For more information on this process, please see below.

Additional projects beyond 2024 are being planned for the balance of homes in the TeleMedia serving area. Stay tuned!
