The Board of Directors is considering the option of providing high-speed broadband internet service to the members of Southeastern Indiana REMC. However, we want your input before making a decision of this magnitude.
Your REMC has been participating in surveys and community discussions regarding the need for high-speed broadband internet service in rural Southeast Indiana. The reports and data are now being published, and once again, the needs of the rural areas are being overlooked due to the higher costs associated with providing the service in lower-density areas.
Your REMC Board of Directors recognizes that this service would enhance the quality of life in our service territory, but the financial commitment required for such an undertaking is not one that we take lightly. That’s why we’re conducting a membership-wide survey.
It is very important that all members complete this survey, so we have solid data to base this decision on. If there is not enough interest and support from the membership, the Board of Directors will not pursue the matter any further.
The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, August 30, 2019.
