Elkhart’s Surf Internet is launching multi-gig fiber-optic internet services in LaPorte County next spring.
LaPorte’s Mayor has a goal of expanding broadband access to 30,000 people in the community by 2030.
Now, they’re one step closer. Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch and the Indiana Broadband Office name La Porte County a Broadband Ready Community in January 2022.
They’ve also adopted a Broadband Ready Community Ordinance.
Northwest Indiana Business Magazine reports that with Surf Internet, service speeds could reach 10 gigs.
All current Surf Internet customers can upgrade to the new service.
