CIRBN has only officially been providing high-speed Internet for just over two weeks, but already the community-based broadband project is showing signs of success. More than 95 percent of grant recipients have adopted CIRBN as their Internet provider. Though it is not yet offering service to organizations outside of the original grant, CIRBN has been contacted by organizations interested in becoming a part of a service that is expected to create great new opportunities for subscribers and close the digital divide. Thanks to all who have been a part in making CIRBN a reality. We look forward to offering unprecedented Internet service to more organizations throughout Central Illinois.
