Fiber access critical in recruiting corporate HQ to Waverly, Iowa

Fiber access critical in recruiting corporate HQ to Waverly, Iowa

"The office will sit on 3.19 acres in the Waverly Business Complex and will bring 35 to 40 professional jobs to the city."

"Waverly has the kind of technology and professionalism that we want," said Brunssen. "T-one lines and fiber optics weren't at our front door, and it was going to cost us very sizable dollars to get it there."


Link to Waverly Light and Power's fiber optic services.

The town, New Hampton, that Waverly recruited this company away from also has a municipal electric department but their web site makes no mention of fiber services.

High speed fiber access is becoming a key to recruiting and retaining employers, especially those with lots of professionals on staff. (But then, if you're visiting this site, you probably knew this already!)
