WARRICK COUNTY, Ind. — Spectrum today announced construction will soon be underway on several fiber-optic network expansion projects that will bring gigabit broadband and other Spectrum services to more than 2,400 homes and small businesses in previously unserved parts of Warrick County, Indiana.

The buildout is part of Spectrum’s approximately $5 billion investment in unserved rural areas, which includes $1.2 billion won in the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) auction. The company’s RDOF expansion will provide broadband access to approximately 1 million customer locations as estimated by the FCC across 24 states in the coming years. Additional funding comes from the Indiana NextLevel Connections Grant and a significant investment from Spectrum.

“Broadband is a vital resource for work, learning and personal connection,” said Dwight Buchanon, Vice President of Construction at Spectrum. “Leveraging resources won in the RDOF auction, we’re building a high-speed, high-capacity network that will bring gigabit internet to thousands of homes and small businesses across Warrick County and beyond — an investment that will ensure families and businesses can participate fully in the digital world, now and well into the future.”

Spectrum services are expected to be available to all residents and small business owners in the buildout areas in by the end of 2026, but services will be made available as soon as work is completed along the project route. Rated the #1 rural internet provider in the nation*, Spectrum will offer a variety of broadband options, including Spectrum Internet Gig, featuring download speeds up to 1 Gbps, and its flagship Spectrum Internet® service, with starting download speeds of 300 Mbps.

“Spectrum’s commitment to help close the digital divide is critically important to so many Hoosier families,” said U.S. Senator Todd Young. “I am pleased to see this latest expansion that will help connect thousands of rural Indiana households and small businesses to the internet.”

Indiana State Senator (District 48) Mark Messmer said today’s announcement will help bridge the digital divide in Warrick County.

“Spectrum’s commitment to expand broadband infrastructure and provide rural, previously unserved residents with reliable access to internet is unparalleled,” Sen. Messmer said. “Their investment and partnership with state and local communities is helping connect thousands of rural Hoosiers to life-changing internet, and enabling them to work remotely, access healthcare from home, and so much more.”

Local residents and business owners should visit to learn more about when their home or business may be able to receive Spectrum services.
