Cedar Falls Utilities will extend high-speed fiber optic broadband services to 1,000 new customers in rural Cedar Falls and surrounding areas. CFU recently received a $2.3 million Empower Rural Iowa Broadband Grant that will cover a portion of the construction costs to extend fiber optic service to areas outside the city limits. 



CFU Services: All CFU fiber internet and TV services will be available to customers in the rural project area. Landline phone service will also be available to some new customers. CFU offers world-class internet reliability and speeds, with internet tiers that start at 250 megabits per second and stretch up to 10 gigabits per second



Project Timeline: Contractors will work in 2022 and 2023 to install backbone conduit stretching over 90 square miles. After the conduit is in place, CFU staff will install fiber optic cables and other network equipment. Customer installations and service activations are expected to begin in the second half of 2023. Customer activation will be a multi-year project. CFU will contact customers in the new service territory later this spring with information about signing up for service. Customers who want to learn more now may call 319-268-5283.
