Cedar Falls Utilities Brings 10 Gigabit Internet Service to Cedar Falls
on Thursday, June 25, 2020
Internet service with speeds up to 10 gigabits per second (gbps) is now available across Cedar Falls. Business and residential customers can upgrade to internet speeds that rank among the fastest in the world.
“We are the first city in Iowa to have 10 gigabit internet service available city-wide,” said Steve Bernard, Cedar Falls Utilities General Manager. “The upgrade is a community asset that supports innovation in business, education and government in Cedar Falls.”
PCMag recently recognized Cedar Falls Utilities as the fastest internet service provider in the country. PCMag measures internet download and upload speeds with their PCMag online Speed Test. In 2020, CFU ranks first among providers measured, beating out large internet providers across the country.
Cedar Falls families are adding internet enabled devices to their homes quickly. More connected devices means that ultra-fast internet speeds will become increasingly important. CFU has designed the network for a community in which everything is connected and internet users expect to have access to the best of all experiences instantly.
“We know customer demand for bandwidth and connection speed will continue to grow,” continued Steve. “We view it as our job to offer a world-class communications network and get out of the way to see what our customers can do with no limitations.”
Most importantly, the business-ready infrastructure helps local companies succeed and positions Cedar Falls to compete nationally for new jobs and economic growth. The 10 Gig network is a platform built for innovation.
“This upgrade to 10 gigabit leads our ability to compete with the best cities in the world in terms of broadband availability, and puts us ahead of the curve for economic development opportunities,” said Shane Graham, Cedar Falls Economic Development Coordinator.
