Iowa's Crossroads of Global Innovation

What impact does the telecommunications industry have on your economic growth efforts?

Technology is becoming increasingly important as we strive toward economic growth in Iowa. From agriculture and healthcare to education and retail, the dependency on technology for daily operations is a necessity.

Our communities are dependent on access to broadband and as advocates and the key drivers of economic growth in our cities and Iowa, we need to understand the critical role that telecommunications has, what is available to our communities and what the future looks like for telecommunications in Iowa.

Iowa LinkedUp advocates for the telecommunications industry much like the Professional Developers of Iowa advocates for the economic development industry. Both offer a large pool of resources and knowledge among members.

Iowa LinkedUp and the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance are partnering to host a forum on Oct. 3 that will highlight these resources and share best practices, opportunities and tips on how Iowa communities have and will benefit from the efforts of Independent Telecommunications Companies.

The independent telecommunications companies in Iowa have been making the investment to provide affordable and reliable broadband services to all Iowans for a hundred years. And they will continue to make that investment.
