What Cedar Falls is working on: Cedar Falls, Iowa is home to one of the first and most successful community broadband systems in the nation. Founded in 1994, today the Cedar Falls Municipal Communications Utility (CFU) provides affordable gigabit broadband city-wide through a fiber-to-the-premises network. More than 14,000 homes and businesses choose CFU for internet and/or television services.
Separate, one-hop fiber paths connect CFU’s local network to diverse upstream providers, including the three most highly connected networks in the world. This robust external network delivers superior reliability and low latency to subscribers, and enables CFU to meet the bandwidth and/or transport capacity needs of virtually any business.
