Legislative leaders say time is right to re-evaluate ICN and look for opportunities

posted on January 15, 2014

Iowa House Speaker Rep. Kraig Paulsen and Iowa Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mike Gronstal both say the Iowa Communications Network (ICN) was a good idea when the state built it a couple decades ago, but now it's a good idea to re-evaluate the network and see how it fits into today's technology. They say it could be a vehicle for expanding broadband access across the state, and it could lead to other new opportunities.
