I am willing to pay for night out downtown Indy. We can all meet up, eat and 
talk business.

It hasn’t been done in a while. I don’t want to be the point man just the 
finance man. Maybe some can organize this and we can all chat about local and 
national issues.

Hi Tyson,
This has real promise, however the telcos have the ear of the legislators right 
now.  We need to get the summer study committee to our cage in Henry Street and 
get all of our numbers in order and our stories ready so that we can make our 
case soon.  We all know that we can do it better with less money from the state 
than the telcos can.  They need to understand that it is all about roof tops.  
Any business case will justify ROI but instead of ROI of Indy and working out 
many of us are starting with a population center of 1000 to 5000 and working 
out.  We will get to the very rural areas sooner!  Tyson please keep us 
informed of what you hear.  I am a little bit behind with the past couple of 
weeks out of town.  We brought our Representative to see our location and we 
all need to do that but getting the ear of the summer study committee is 
paramount to our cause.  Thanks for the info Tyson.

Keep an eye out for this.  it could be an avenue for WISP’s to get State money 
for rural broadband.

Bill Status – 2nd reading – 2nd house
Looks like it is proceeding but I’m not sure how many hurdles come after 2nd 
reading 2nd house

the qualifications….

ISP that serviced at least 100 customers for 3 consecutive years
Ability to prove funding for the proposed buildout, I believe funding for 20+% 
would be needed
Ability to provide at minimum 10Mbps and 25Mbps maximum
Prove the area doesn’t have 10Mbps available now

HB 1065 High Speed Internet Service
This legislation was amended this week to establish a grant program for 
internet service providers to request assistance in expanding broadband 
services to unserved areas. The Office of Community and Rural Affairs will 
administer this grant program and the Indiana Economic Development Corporation 
will create a map detailing areas of the state which do not have at least one 
provider offering internet service at the speed defined by code. While there is 
a base amount of funding for the grant in this session, the full funding of the 
program will be considered next session when the state budget is created. This 
legislation would be the first direct grant program to service providers by the 
state to directly assist buildout of the state broadband system.
