  • View available products by clicking Plans & Pricing  above.
  • 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.

Why is high-speed internet critical to our future?

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

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.

This is wonderful. I have been dreaming of this for years. It is VERY important to pre-register because the documentation says that plans will not be finalized until pre-registration goals are met. So, I encourage everybody to PLEASE pre-register now. The sooner the pre-registration goals are met, the sooner the work will begin! THANKS!!!!

As President of Dogwood Hill Estates (located between SR67 and SR142), we are VERY excited for this service to finally be coming available in our area. We've tried satellite internet (terrible) and finally have just learned to minimally survive with activating personal hotspots from our cell phones. This truly is great news! Hopefully our area (and that of our Wilbur neighbors) will be included on the next phase of fiber installation! Thank you!

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!

Already have your electric service, would be extremely happy if remc would run device to out neighborhood that always gets skipped. 40isj homes and I’d have a hard time imagining almost all wouldn’t sign up

I can’t wait to get this. But you need to advertise this great deal a whole lot more. The only way I found out about it is through my son who heard about it from a friend. I know there has to be a lot of people out there who would jump all over this if they knew about it. I don’t know how but you must GET THE WORD OUT!!!!!!
