Typically, our fiber construction process takes about 6 weeks to complete. Unfortunately, this is very dependent on the weather and the supply chain demands. You will be notified by a letter in the mail a few weeks before construction starts in your neighborhood. Throughout the construction process, we provide updates on our Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, and Dubuque New Area Facebook Group pages or the expansion update page

During the winter months, ImOn continues construction. However, due to the unpredictable winter weather conditions the construction process may take a little longer to complete

"Future build" refers to our upcoming plans to expand our fiber optic network into your area. This indicates that we are currently in the process of necessary preparations to bring our services to your location. Rest assured; we are actively working towards delivering high-quality fiber optic connectivity in your area soon.

Once most of the physical construction is complete in your neighborhood, the ImOn construction crews will begin the process of restoring your impacted lawn. ImOn crews will fill holes with at least 6 inches of black dirt and rake the area to make sure the area is level. Next, grass seed and fertilizer will be spread over the impacted areas. The homeowner will need to continue to maintain by watering the reseeded area.

If you need further help please fill out the form on this page.

Choosing between 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz Wi-Fi depends on your needs and environment. Some routers offer dual-band, so use 5 GHz for faster speeds and less interference, and 2.4 GHz for longer range or compatible devices. Adapt your usage accordingly for optimal Wi-Fi performance.

Use 2.4 GHz:

  • When you have multiple walls and obstacles between your devices and the router
  • When you need wider coverage
  • When you are dealing with interference from other devices operating, such as Bluetooth devices or cordless phones

Use 5 GHz:

  • When you require faster speeds and higher bandwidth for activities like HD streaming or online gaming
  • When you are in an environment with minimal interference or fewer devices operating
  • When you have newer devices that support 5 GHz and can take advantage of its capabilities
