ImOn Communications Moving Headquarters to Kingston Village in SW Cedar Rapids

Cedar Rapids, Iowa – ImOn Communications announces they will be relocating their headquarters to the Peoples Bank building at 101 3rd Avenue SW beginning in Fall of 2018. The company will occupy the 3rd and 4th floors of the building. 

ImOn’s headquarters is currently located in the Great America building on 1st Ave. SE. The move will occur in phases and will be completed by Spring 2019.  ImOn will relocate approximately 70 employees to the Kingston Village location by early 2019, and expects to be adding an additional 45 employees over the next five years.

“We’re thrilled to be one of the first large companies to move to the Kingston Village area,” says Patrice Carroll, CEO of ImOn Communications.  “Downtown doesn’t stop at the river.  Our employees enjoy working downtown, and with this move we can continue to offer them that experience while also contributing to the ongoing revitalization on the west side of the river in Kingston Village.”

ImOn considered several factors when selecting their new headquarters location, including room for future expansion, easy Interstate access, available parking, and the opportunity for employees to enjoy surrounding businesses during off-work hours.  The company was also looking for flexibility to incorporate some more innovative work and collaboration spaces.

“I’m so pleased we are able to meet ImOn’s workspace needs here in Kingston Village,” says Fred Timko Co-owner, along with Gary Rozek of the building.  “I’m confident this will be a great solution for both ImOn and the neighborhood – the building suits ImOn’s business needs, their employees will enjoy all Kingston Village has to offer, and the local businesses will benefit from the increased foot traffic.”

“The new location checks all the boxes,” adds Ms. Carroll.  “We’ll have the room to design some creative work spaces, plenty of free parking for our employees, future space to accommodate our growth plans, and all this in a central location where our employees will be surrounded by great restaurants, coffee shops, and other exciting new businesses.”

ImOn currently offers walk-in Customer Care service at the Great America building, where customers can pay their bill, return equipment, and get their questions answered.  This walk-in service will continue to be offered at the new location and will likely be the last department to move in Spring 2019.  ImOn customers will be notified well in advance of the move to minimize any inconvenience.

In addition to the headquarters location, ImOn has a warehouse facility in Cedar Rapids as well as office and warehouse space in Iowa City and Dubuque.

ImOn Communications Announces Gigabit Fiber-to-the-Home Residential Service Offering 

Marion and Hiawatha are now gigabit residential communities

Cedar Rapids, Iowa – ImOn Communications, a leading local provider of data and communications products and services to residents and businesses in Cedar Rapids, Marion and Hiawatha began offering 1 gigabit (1,000Mbps) download speeds today to residents in Marion and Hiawatha who are connected via ImOn’s fiber-to-the-home technology.

“Gigabit Internet will quickly become an essential service for families,” said Patrice Carroll, ImOn President and CEO. “Residents are demanding maximum download speeds, high upload speeds, and reliability of service from their broadband provider. Our gigabit fiber-to-the-home service delivers on all fronts.”

ImOn’s new residential fiber-to-the-home Internet services include the following:

Fiber Internet 150Mb (up to 150Mbps download/75Mbps upload speed) - $64.98/month standard price
Fiber Internet 500Mb (up to 500Mbps download/250Mbps upload speed) - $99.98/month standard price
Fiber Internet 1Gig (up to 1,000Mbps download/500Mbps upload speed) - $149.98/month standard price

“The arrival of ImOn’s 1 gigabit fiber-to-the-home residential service is a huge win for the Hiawatha community, said Hiawatha Mayor Tom Theis. “Our residents are consuming more Internet bandwidth than ever, and having gigabit connectivity is critical to being able to embrace the connected home of the future.”

ImOn’s gigabit service is 100 times faster than a residential service of 10Mbps.

“Marion’s vision has always been to become a connected community, and ImOn’s gigabit fiber-to-the-home offering is a huge step in the right direction towards achieving that vision, said Marion Mayor Snooks Bouska. “We have all heard about the benefits of Google’s fiber communities and we are excited to see our own gigabit community become a reality with ImOn’s investment in Marion.”

ImOn Communications Announces Free Wi-Fi Service in Downtown Cedar Rapids

Cedar Rapids - ImOn Communications announced today that it is launching a free Wi-Fi service in downtown Cedar Rapids. The network, currently under construction, will initially cover approximately one square mile of downtown, NewBo City Market and the new McGrath City Amphitheater. Future plans call for incorporating more public spaces and venues into the Wi-Fi network. ImOn is bearing 100% of the equipment and maintenance costs associated with the network as a donation to the community.

"ImOn is proud to call downtown Cedar Rapids home and we want to continue to make the downtown area welcoming to those who work, live and visit here," said Patrice Carroll, ImOn president and CEO. "We believe providing free ultra-fast, reliable Wi-Fi service will add greatly to the downtown experience."

The project is being coordinated with resources from the City of Cedar Rapids. The Wi-Fi network access points will be deployed on and powered by City street lights and utility poles, and will provide network connections on City fiber optics in some areas.

"This project is a shining example of how public/private partnerships can be formed to provide valuable new services to the community of Cedar Rapids," said Jeff Pomeranz, Cedar Rapids City Manager. "I appreciate ImOn's contribution to make this happen, and their commitment to enhancing the quality of life for residents and visitors of our community. This new service is a big step towards our goal to make Cedar Rapids a 'connected' city."

The ImOn Free Wi-Fi network is a commercial grade, state-of-the-art network which utilizes a series of access points located throughout downtown that are connected to ImOn's high-speed 10 gigabit fiber network. The Wi-Fi network can handle hundreds of simultaneous users.
