CBAN's latest Community Member is the City of Webster City, Iowa. Webster City has operated a fiber loop in the community since the early 2000's and is now in the process of evaluating options for expanding that fiber to reach more of the community.
Webster City, the county seat of Hamilton County, currently has a municipal electric utility. The existing fiber loop was built to provide connectivity to the electric substations but has since been used in conjunction with a private partner to serve a limited number of businesses and institutions. The City's current pre-feasibility study is examining the costs and benefits of a community-wide fiber network and consumer attitudes toward exisiting providers.
Welcome to the team, Webster City!
