The Clinton County, Iowa Board of Supervisors has voted unanimously to conduct a county-wide study designed to identify gaps in broadband availability and facilitate new networks in those areas.
Clinton County is in far eastern Iowa. Parts of the county have fiber-to-the-home coverage from local providers such as CBAN members Grand Mound Cooperative Telephone and Miles Communications and several others. Other portions of the county are covered by legacy phone companies Windstream and CenturyLink and Mediacom.
County leaders have expressed interest in using a portion of the county's allocation from the American Rescue Plan for broadband infrastructure in order to facilitate the extension of broadband in areas that don't have access to service today.
