Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to Kick off Indianola FTTH Project

Posted By IAMU, Wednesday, July 26, 2017

Indianola’s broadband future is fiber optics, and the future begins in August with construction of a community-wide fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on Friday, August 4, 2017 on the Indianola Municipal Utilities (IMU) FTTH project. The ceremony is scheduled for 11:00am at Sesquicentennial Park at the corner of US Highway 65/69 and East Salem Avenue. In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held in the Indianola City Council Chambers in the adjacent municipal building.  All IAMU members are invited to attend.

Participants in the ribbon cutting will include representatives of IMU and the City of Indianola as well as other community leaders. Several dignitaries are being invited to participate and will be announced as invitations are accepted.

IMU will soon begin construction on a fiber-to-the-home network connecting every home and business in Indianola with gigabit-capable internet, telephone service, and cable TV. The $12.3 million project is an extension of IMU’s previous work to provide fiber connections in a portion of the community that began in 2007.

Excel Utility Contractors from St. James, MO is the primary contractor for the outside plant construction, and will be working with subcontractors from central Iowa to help build the network. Construction is expected to be completed by late summer of 2018.
