Mediacom Expands Fiber Network to Truesdale

Mediacom Communications announces the completion of a fiber-optic network expansion that brings ultra-high-speed broadband services to the community of Truesdale.

A number of service offerings will be available including broadband plans with download speeds up to two gigabits per second, along with low-cost phone plans. Mediacom also offers “Connect2Compete-Plus” for low-income households, and participates in the Affordable Connectivity Program. Both programs will help remove income barriers to broadband accessibility for eligible Truesdale residents.

Truesdale is the tenth community that Mediacom has formed a partnership with for the Empower Iowa Rural Broadband Grant Program. The public-private partnership has allowed Mediacom to extend its fiber network to over 14-hundred rural Iowa homes and businesses over the last several years.
