Community leaders in Grinnell, Iowa are putting out the call: if citizens want access to fiber optic broadband, they need to speak up.
Mahaska Communications Group (MCG), which has operated a FTTH network in Oskaloosa, Iowa for several years, is currently working with the City of Grinnell and the Chamber of Commerce to measure community interest in a fiber network in the city of just over 9,000. If the market looks attractive, MCG would expand their existing service territory to include Grinnell.
MCG has been on the move of late, having built FTTP in New Sharon, Montezuma, and Lake Ponderosa over the past two years. Until this year, MCG has been partnering with Indianola Municipal Utilities to provide services over Indianola's fiber network. That relationship is ending as IMU completes its network and converts MCG customers over to IMU.
