— Mercury Broadband to Deliver Hybrid Fixed Wireless and Fiber-optic Broadband Solutions to Address the Digital Divide in Crawfordsville, Indiana and Surrounding Areas —

Garrett Wiseman, Co-Founder and Chief Executive of Mercury Broadband announced today the company plans to offer state-of-the-art Broadband Services to 17,000 residential households and businesses.

“We are excited to enter this new phase of expansion with the City of Crawfordsville and are looking forward to advancing broadband Internet to rural and under-served communities across Montgomery County and the State of Indiana,” said Mr. Wiseman. “We are committed to providing affordable services and providing a positive impact in the communities we serve.”

Mercury Broadband has entered into a purchase agreement for approximately five acres of property located on Industrial Boulevard in Crawfordsville, Indiana. The Service Center is to be approximately 12,000 square feet with office and warehouse space. As a part of the decision-making process, Mercury Broadband will seek a tax abatement incentive from the City of Crawfordsville for their development. Pending city approval of property tax abatement, construction on the new site is expected to be completed in mid-2024. Beginning in 2024, Mercury will establish a temporary facility while construction of the Service Center begins. Mercury is estimated to employ approximately 40 to 50 employees.

“We are excited to welcome Mercury Broadband to our community and are very pleased that they have chosen to locate their new service center in Crawfordsville. Mercury will be creating high-quality employment opportunities in the growing tech sector, while increasing connectivity options for residents and businesses in this region of Indiana,” said Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton. “We’ve worked hard to attract Mercury to our community, and the types of jobs created by this investment fit perfectly within our strategy to further diversify the types of employment opportunities available locally.”

Customers will be able to purchase services next year in the first and second quarters.
