That last days of June brought some developments in plans for a municipal fiber utility in Waterloo, Iowa. At a special council meeting on June 29th, the City awarded a bid of $77.86 million to ITG Communications of Tullahoma, Tennessee to build the FTTP network.
The Waterloo Municipal Communications Utility has also launched a website to provide information about the project to residents (https://waterloofiber.com). Waterloo Fiber is planning to offer internet speeds of up to 10 Gbps symmetrical along with cable TV and telephone service.
Construction is expected to get underway soon with the first connections planned for late this year.
