On Monday, November 2, 2020, Southeastern Indiana REMC and SEI Communications announced that the two cooperatives have entered into a Broadband Joint Venture Agreement to serve SEIREMC members with high-speed internet service. SEI FIBER, a division of Southeastern Indiana REMC, is expected to launch in 2021. The REMC will build out the fiber network and SEI Communications will connect the service at the home or business. The next step is to complete the Engineering Design Plan, which will determine the buildout and timing of the project.
On Friday, February 21, 2020, Southeastern Indiana REMC entered into an Executable Project Plan (EPP) with Pulse Broadband, LLC. This plan will take approximately 90 days to complete. The results of this study will determine whether the co-op will enter into a joint agreement with SEI Communications to move forward with a fiber project in southeastern Indiana.
Southeastern Indiana REMC conducted a member-wide survey in 2019 regarding the need for high-speed broadband internet service in our seven-county service territory of Dearborn, Franklin, Jefferson, Jennings, Ripley, Ohio, and Switzerland Counties. Those results, along with staffing and operations considerations and funding and financial opportunities, have been extensively analyzed. The Board of Directors is acutely aware of the impact of this decision upon the organization and its members. Much like electricity back in the 1930s and 40s, this may be a service that the co-op can bring to areas other providers are not willing to serve. High-speed broadband internet service provides many potential benefits for our community, such as enabling students to learn more effectively, bringing businesses and jobs to the area, and helping to keep young adults in our rural towns.
