The Community Broadband Action Network (CBAN) is excited to welcome our newest Community Member...the City of Pella, Iowa!
Pella is a community of just over 10,000 in central Iowa. The City has operated a successful municipal electric utility since 1911. In 2018, voters approved the creation of a municipal telecommunications utility with 92% approval. Since then the City has conducted a feasibility study and created a business plan, and is finishing final design for a fiber-to-the-premise network. Construction of the fiber network is expected to begin in the late spring of 2020.
Hat's off to the people of Pella for taking charge of their technology future and securing better broadband for the future. And welcome to CBAN, City of Pella!
