Those in Southern Indiana who are having trouble accessing the internet will soon have a few free options in Salem and other areas. 

In response to the growing need for greater Internet connectivity during the COVID-19 crisis, Hoosier fiber-optic broadband company Mainstream Fiber Networks has created 11 free public Wi-Fi access points across southern Indiana.

“During this challenging time we want to make sure our friends and neighbors have access to broadband when they need it most,” said Bryan Gabriel, founder and CEO of Mainstream Fiber Networks. “These public Wi-Fi access points will allow students to continue e-learning, employees to stay connected with their workplace, and families to remain in touch with loved ones.”

Community members who wish to use a public Wi-Fi access point simply need to agree to Mainstream’s terms of service. No fee or password is required. The public Wi-Fi access points can be found in the parking lots of the following locations:
