Cedar Falls Utilities received major recognition last week as PC Magazine named them the fastest ISP (internet service provider) in America.
The designation comes from PC Magazine, which does an annual assessment of the fastest ISP's in the United States based on individual speed tests. In order to qualify for the rankings, an ISP must have at least 100 submissions using the PC Magazine speed test.
The magazine's editors couldn't find enough good things to say about CFU, one of the first municipal telecommunications providers in Iowa.
Cedar Falls Utilities (CFU) out of Cedar Falls, Iowa, has the fastest average PCMag Speed Index we've ever seen. Even individual towns with fast speeds were never capable of this in our previous tests. (Pick your jaw up off the floor so you can start searching Zillow for house listings there.) Its PSI of 1,350.4 shows what's possible when your state doesn't block municipal ISPs that are part of a town/city utility. (They are blocked in about half of the US.)
