IFMC has shut down and has been since April 23, 2023. If you are looking for help, the best thing you can do is contact your Elected Officials. We tried for five years, and McHenry County has no political will to improve Internet Infrastructure. Please read our post on The End of an Era. Feel free to join whoever is left on Discord or Contact us.
