GOSHEN — Elkhart County officials expect to start seeing a profit on the county-owned fiber optic network in the coming years, the Redevelopment Commission has learned.

Ben Miller with Pyrsia Consulting LLC, which was hired as the dark-fiber consultant for the county, gave the commission an update recently on the fiber network. The RDC has contributed funding as the county expands its fiber network, by installing inactive lines and then leasing them out to internet service providers.
