  • See if you are in Phase 1 using Zones above.
  • Preregister today, and share this site with your neighbors and friends.
  • Stay connected, and visit often to view our Updates tab.

In order to minimize risk, SCI REMC's Board of Directors chose to move forward in a phased-in zone approach to protect co-op ratepayers and the financial integrity of the electric cooperative. Phase one construction starts in Morgan County. We expect to start construction in June, and begin connecting homes in January. We encourage all members to preregister at any time. By preregistering you are expressing interest in service. When construction is in process in your area, we will contact you to complete an order for service. There is no payment collected during preregistration. This process just allows you to complete a simple form to let us know what services you are interested in. By preregistering now, the installation fee will be waived. When the time arrives to install fiber at your home, you will simply sign a service agreement.

Hanging strand for Fiber internet

10:08am July 20, 2018


One down, 58,999 poles to go. ... Installing fiber internet in the rural parts of south central Indiana is no easy feat. The crews are putting up strand, which is sort of a guy wire for the fiber. The fiber will be lashed to the strand once all the strand is up. SCI REMC, a local electric cooperative in investing nearly $100 million to make sure its members have the same access to high-speed internet as metropolitan residents.

 


Crew Location Update

10:40am July 9, 2018

We have crews out this week on Mahalasville Road in Martinsville, and in Brown County on Gatesville Road. The crews are putting up strand, which is sort of a guy wire for the fiber. The fiber will be lashed to the strand once the strand is up.

They are inspecting all of the poles along the planned routes, checking to see if they may need to have work performed (“make-ready”) to make room for the fiber and, also, to confirm that the proposed route is acceptable. 

First lines for SCI Fiber

8:29am June 26, 2018

Construction for Fiber started June 25, 2018 off Mahalasville Rd,
and will be available to 3,754 homes in Phase 1 in early 2019.



Fiber Construction Begins!

3:50pm June 21, 2018

SCI Fiber begins construction on Phase 1


MARTINSVILLE — South Central Indiana Rural Electric Membership Corporation (SCI REMC) recently began construction of a fiber-to-the-home network, SCI Fiber, across its service territory. Construction on the SCI Fiber network started this week and will be available to 3,754 homes in early 2019. The first construction area, known as Phase 1, is southeastern Morgan County near Cope and Taggart Crossing, northwestern Brown County near Waycross, and around Lake Lemon in Monroe County. SCI REMC members in these areas will have high-speed internet available up to 1 Gigabit per second. 

SCI Fiber is asking that customers preregister for service on their site https://join.sciremc.com. Once the technology is installed and tested, SCI will contact preregistered customers to start scheduling installations. At installation, SCI Fiber will connect the fiber line to homes and set up the equipment.

“Today, quality of life and economic development are tied to the availability of high-speed internet,” said 
SCI REMC President and CEO James Tanneberger. “Communities within our service territory are underserved, and we recognize the positive role SCI REMC can play in meeting our members’ needs.” 

High-speed internet in rural areas has been a large cause, shared by several groups including the Office of the Lt. Governor of Indiana, the Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) and local legislators. 

Since 1939, SCI REMC has provided essential electric services, mostly in remote rural locations. Availability of high-speed communications and internet access in the areas they serve has today become as critical to the health and prosperity of rural communities as availability of electricity service was in the 1930s. 

“Access to a high-speed internet connection has gone from a luxury to a necessity, and most of our electric members are at risk of being left behind,” said Tanneberger. “We want to make sure this does not happen.” 

High-speed internet access in the rural areas means: more economic development with businesses being able to move into these areas, potentially higher property values for electric co-op members, access to advancements like tele-health, online classes and more. Additionally, installing fiber throughout the SCI REMC service territory will help modernize electric operations to meet members’ growing desires to save energy through load control and other functions that require smart infrastructure.

SCI Fiber is a division of SCI REMC, a member-owned cooperative electric distribution facility. A cooperative is a business owned by its customers, known as members. SCI REMC is one of 38 rural electric cooperatives in Indiana. Electric cooperatives were organized throughout the state in the 1930s. At that time, investor-owned utilities were supplying power in urban areas but would not supply electric power to rural customers. This was common across the country at that time in history. People living in rural areas saw that those in cities had electricity and wanted it as well. As a result, with loans from the Rural Electrification Administration, rural communities banded together and created electric cooperatives. Hoosiers 79 years ago in Morgan, Monroe, Owen, Brown and parts of Putnam, Clay and Johnson counties, pooled their money, and set poles and tied lines by hand to bring electricity to rural South Central Indiana in the form of SCI REMC.

Why is high-speed internet critical to our future?

Announcing Phase I Of Fiber-To-The-Home Project

2:21pm April 4, 2018

South Central Indiana Rural Electric Membership Corporation (SCI REMC) kicked off its anticipated fiber-to-the-home business (SCI FIBER) today. The first areas set to receive high-speed internet services through SCI are southeastern Morgan County near Cope and Taggart Crossing, northwestern Brown County near Waycross, and around Lake Lemon in Monroe County. Construction is set to begin in June, and SCI plans to offer members in these areas an opportunity to start signing up for service at the end of the year.

At the event, State Senator Eric Koch (District 44) stated, “South Central Indiana REMC was originally formed to solve a big infrastructure problem—lack of electricity in rural Indiana. Here we are 80 years later, and SCI REMC is announcing they are solving the 21st Century problem of a lack of electricity—a lack of high-speed internet service in rural Indiana.” Koch has authored several pieces of legislation over years designed to solve the lack of rural internet in Indiana, including the bill for infrastructure development zones in 2013, the broadband-ready community bill in 2015, and the Senate-Enrolled Act in 2017 that allows electric co-ops to utilize existing electric poles for fiber installation.

“Today, quality of life and economic development are tied to the availability of high-speed internet. Communities within our service territory are underserved, and we recognize the positive role SCI REMC can play in meeting our members’ needs. A collaborative effort, I give credit to my fellow board members for their fastidious dedication to our members, and to the staff of SCI REMC for working diligently to make fiber a reality. Both were needed to make this project possible,” said SCI REMC Board Chairman Bruce Hamlin.


Phase I will include offering service to approximately 3,754 homes. The selected locations explore the many scenarios SCI will encounter throughout the construction process, including uneven terrain, both underground and overhead installations, and more, in order to put the co-op in the best position to succeed as they get the business up and running.

“We are working to fill a need in our rural communities, and in wanting to be transparent through it all, we area posting updates and frequently asked questions on a dedicated website www.sciremc.com/scifiber,” said SCI REMC President and CEO James Tanneberger. “We encourage people to visit this site often for updates, and to preregister for service, which will help us gauge interest, as well as be a factor in how our construction will progress.”

High-speed internet in rural areas has been a large cause, shared by several groups including the Office of the Lt. Governor of Indiana, the Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA), local legislators like Rep. Eric Koch, electric cooperatives and more.

Since 1939, SCI REMC has provided essential electric services, mostly in remote rural locations. Availability of high-speed communications and internet access in the areas we serve has today become as critical to the health and prosperity of rural communities as availability of electricity service was in the 1930s. Access to a highspeed internet connection has gone from a luxury to a necessity, and most of our electric members are at risk of being left behind. We want to make sure this does not happen. We want to fulfill the cooperative’s responsibility to the community as implied by Cooperative Principle #7, which states, “While focusing on member needs, cooperatives work for the sustainable development of their communities through policies supported by the membership.”

High-speed internet access in the rural areas means: more economic development with businesses being able to move into these areas, potentially higher property values for electric co-op members, access to advancements like tele-health, online classes and more. Additionally, installing fiber throughout the service territory will help modernize electric operations to meet members’ growing desires to save energy through load control and other functions that require smart infrastructure.


We're bringing fiber to rural Hoosiers!

8:21am April 3, 2018

Since 1939, SCI REMC has provided south central Indiana with essential services, even in remote rural locations. Recently, you—our members—asked us to investigate the option of providing high-speed internet to our service area. We heard you, and I am thrilled to announce the launch of SCI Fiber. SCI Fiber brings members high-speed internet up to 1 Gigabit per second. That’s 1,000 Megabits per second—100 times faster than the national average.

Fiber is known for being future-proof, meaning the fiber we install today will be able to handle increased data loads as the need for more and more speed grows. Our fiber network is also more reliable than other types of networks, less prone to interference and complications from lightning and other natural elements. Fiber also tends to raise the property value of homes by as much as 3.1%.

Every SCI REMC member who preregisters on this site will be eligible for free installation when SCI Fiber gets to their area. You will also receive a wifi router so you have the best possible wireless connection in your home or business. This will allow you to have multiple devices from desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones, TVs, and more all connected at speeds that will make everyone happy.

SCI Fiber also introduces phone service! Our phone service will provide crystal clear connections, including reliable access to 911 emergency services and advanced calling features.

South Central Indiana REMC has a proud history of bringing power to the area, and we look forward to the future as we bring fiber to the communities we know and love.

Sincerely,
James Tanneberger
President & CEO, SCI REMC

Savannah McIntosh: Good question! SCI REMC is installing fiber to our members for two main reasons. The first, as you know, is to provide high-speed internet for those who don’t have it. The second is for a communications system of our own, to improve outage management and distribution automation, which requires us to install fiber throughout our entire service area.

Just curious why there seem ps to be so much delay already, first thing I saw was construction would begin in May and phase 1 would be done by the end of the year. Then it was June 18, the pic you posted shows yet another week of delays with the project having started on June 25th and now I see reference to phase 1 being complete early 2019.

Thank you for bringing fiber to us "un-reachables" by other surrounding companies. Literally I live a mile from three directions of other providers! My kids will thank you!...I will thank you b/c working from home may actually be an option again for me. Additionally, as my kids grow, the school curriculum requires internet hook ups to do homework. Thank you again!

Hello. We are very excited about this project as I currently work from home. My employer will pay for my office line so I would like to sign up for that first and then once I’m out of contract with my ATT hotspot I’d like to add an additional line for personal use. Will that be possible with initial installation? If so, how will I go about getting set up? My company isn’t local but they do set everything up through our broadband provisioning team. Thank you in advance.

Hello! Just thought I would check in...We are on McWhorter Road...between Bill Smith Road and Dillman Road. We are considered Phase 1. Just curious about once the fiber is run to this area and installed in our residence do need to wait until the completion of Phase 1 to get internet? Or are things connected and powered up as you go along? I hope that make sense....It looks like the installers are still southwest of us. Is that correct? Tell them to take care and be safe! Thank you! We are really excited!

I need your service now! The top half of Arthur rd cannot get highspeed internet. We can only get Satalite, it's very expensive and unreliable. Last I checked we did at least have a choice of 2 service providers. Unfortunatly you must also pay for their satalite TV to get it with one of them. I realize for money reasons you will install in areas with the most people interested but I'd really like it if you installed in areas without options. We need you yesterday! I'm tired of paying $70+ a monthfor 10 g of data. It is gone in a flash. Not that our speeds could even support streaming but it would be nice to feel like I live in the present technological civilization. We can't even get a cell signal here.

Hi, is it possible to change your tier after it has been installed in your home if it is not enough mbps to do the things you would like it to?

Will IPv6 be available? Also, if I use my own router, will your modem be just a modem, or will it have some sort of router built into it as well?

Dear SCI REMC: THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Our family cannot wait to have your fiber service installed!!! We have been reading about the addition of the 500 Mbps tier and we think this is also excellent news--thank you! It hits that awesome "sweet spot" between the 100 Mbps and the 1,000 Mbps (1 Gbps) plans. Plus, it's a fair deal for symmetrical service, without any quotas! This cannot happen quickly enough. Also, we just noticed, too, that in addition to adding the 500 Mbps tier for $100.00 per month, now, the $40.00 per month fee for VoIP service has been waived for those purchasing the 1 Gbps tier, at $150.00 per month!!! Honestly, that $40.00 per month fee for VoIP service seemed a little expensive to us, particularly for those purchasing the more expensive tiers; however, with that fee being waived on the 1 Gbps tier, this makes this tier that much more attractive. Plus, it makes this top tier much more economical, since it just received a $40.00 per month price cut!!! Thank you, SCI REMC for installing and providing these excellent services for your co-op members!!! Our family will continue to spread the word on these great upcoming fiber services from SCI REMC; again, thank you!!! BRING ON THE FIBER!!!

We live approximately 4 miles outside of Mooresville in densely populated area that is woefully underserved. I signed up for the Tier 2 service when it becomes available in our area. My question is how much speed/capacity will I need for a TV streaming service like YouTube or Sling Tv. Our cable from Newwave is atrocious! Help!! Thanks in advance, James L. Hammon Jr.

Hello, just curious.. but from where is the fiber optics coming from? is it running from martinsville down south? is it going from south side upwards? I live in unionville and I wanted to estimate or an estimate as to when we will be serviced. I read up that service to all Phase 1 customers will be by the end of this year, but I assume some get it faster than others correct?

Our current internet is slow, unreliable, and has little to nothing on the upload side. With no competition, improvement or service are not a priority. We are so excited to have SCI Fiber out near Sweetwater. Any word on when Phase 2 will be announced? The suspense is killing me.

This is good news. Needs to expand north of Spencer as soon as possible. I do medical research that requires internet downloads and satellite just does not do the job. I have to drive into Indianapolis sometime just to get a faster connection to get data. Thank you for the initiative!

Who could I contact about the type of phone service that REMC can provide? We currently have AT&T land line at our home. Will the REMC be land line or will it be cell phone? Thank you, Valerie

Rats! I'm not in the Phase One area! We've had the internet service REMC experimented with over the electric lines! I was very happy with it, but then it went bye-bye. Now I'm on Satellite Internet and Phone. Pricey! Can't wait till you offer this in our area!

Chad Witham: Construction will begin for phase 1 at the end of May. The backbone is the main fiber loop that will carry high-speed internet to our entire service territory. From the backbone/loop fiber lines will be carried into specific service areas. From those areas, we will connect to individual member homes. You will sign a contract for service immediately prior to installing fiber inside your home. Installation is free for members if you preregister and then sign up for service (sign a contract) once we are in your area. If we have to go back to your home after construction is completed in that area, there will be an installation fee of $300.

I have some questions in regards to your comment below that you’ll connect members that have a signed contract in phase one once the backbone construction has been completed. 1. Where and when do we sign contracts? 2. What is considered the backbone construction? 3. What is the tap fee to actually connect to the fiber? I have heard some numbers from other areas and most of them are well outside what seems reasonable or affordable once again limiting those that can get high speed Internet.

We are more than excited to hear this. We once had FTTH with Smithville Telephone before we built this new home and moved in. When we first bought the property 11 years ago Smithville told us they would have FTTH out here (Stinesville) in two years. They've told us that every year for 10 years and just this last month told us they "might" have it out here in three years. I hope SCIREMC beats that record. But I also hope you will offer TV service as well like Smithville did when we had them.

We're very excited about this. I use the internet to make a living, and regularly drive to a nearby town to sit in coffee shops just to get work done. That's because right now we get our internet via cell phone, and that's only possible with a booster antenna placed on the roof, as high as we can get it. Our speeds are typically about 1.5mbps, with 0.2mbps being typical for the evening, making even basic email almost unusable, nevermind video. I will be telling my neighbors about this!
