Mainstream provides free public Wi-Fi sites in Harrison County
Mainstream Fiber Networks is working to help the community by providing free public Wi-Fi in the parking lot of the Harrison County Community Foundation, located at 1523 Foundation Way NE in Corydon.

There is also public Wi-Fi available in the Mainstream regional office parking lot, located at 2370 Landmark Way NE in Corydon.
“During this challenging time, we want to make sure our friends and neighbors in Harrison County 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 eLearning, employees to stay connected with their workplace and families to remain in touch with loved ones.”
