Wintek powered by Tipmont is building state-of-the-art fiber internet to our entire electric service area. Enter your address above to get started.

Wintek Internet 2021 Build Plans

Since Tipmont’s fiber build project got underway in Spring 2019, we’ve connected more than 2,000 fiber internet customers. Thanks to recent grant funding from state and federal programs, we’re accelerating our build plan in 2021 and 2022. As a result, we’ve cut our original promise that every Tipmont member will have access to broadband internet within eight years—almost in half!

Tipmont’s 2021 fiber build will bring Wintek fiber internet to an additional 3,100 homes in Tippecanoe, Montgomery, and Fountain counties.

Frequently Asked Questions

How were the 2021 build areas determined?

Our 2021 build areas were primarily determined by grant funding we received from state and federal sources. Indiana's Next Level Connections broadband grant program awarded Tipmont over $16 million from the program's second phase.

How do I know if I am included in the 2021 build plans?

An interactive map of the grant awards and 2021 build areas is available here. You can enter your address and see if your home or business is in an area where Tipmont received grant funding or is building in 2021.

I'm in the 2021 build area! Can I order service?
Not yet. What you can do is sign up at join.wintek.com so we can notify you when we're ready to begin taking orders in your area.
How were the grant funding areas determined?
We submitted grant applications for nearly every census block in our electric service area that met the program's eligibility requirements. Several of our applications were challenged by other providers claiming that broadband service is already available or federal funding to build broadband was already awarded to another provider.
How can I find out if I live in an area that received grant funding?
We've provided an interactive map that allows you to see the census blocks that received grant funding.

Grant funding map
Why is my area not in the 2021 build plan?
Where we’re building in 2021 is based on the grant funding we received from state and federal sources. We submitted grant applications for nearly every census block in our electric service area that met eligibility requirements. Because the grant funding we were awarded must be completed within two years, we are building in those areas first. Several of our applications were challenged by other providers claiming that they either already offer broadband service there, or that they had received federal funding to build broadband service there. We fought hard and were able to disprove several of these challenges, especially the ones claiming that adequate service was already being offered. Regardless, we will build fiber internet to the entire Tipmont electric service area. 
Will internet be available outside Tipmont's electric service area?
Our fiber build (and associated grant funding) is for our electric service area only at this time, scheduled to be completed in 2024. When that is complete, we we'll evaluate areas outside of our electric service territory.
Where will Tipmont build after 2021?
Our engineers are planning the 2022 build areas and we will share those when they are finalized. Make sure you've signed up at the top of this page so you can be the first to know!
Why did my area not receive grant funding?
Several of our applications were challenged by other providers claiming that they either already offer broadband service there, or that they had previously received federal funding to build broadband service there. Most of those challenges were from a company called Watch Communications. We fought hard and were able to disprove several of these challenges, especially the ones claiming that adequate service was already being offered.
