Finishing Some of the Work in Town; Moving Rural

Progress continues on the New Albin fiber build. Boring in town is nearly complete, with the final stops being at Sunrise Court. Boring is the drilling process used for installing cable underground with minimal interruption to the surface above. The crew working on rural New Albin finished plowing fiber to the Wheatland area, and now is working in Irish Hollow and along the Iowa River Road.


  • 602 homes and businesses will be upgraded to fiber.
  • Approximately 120 miles of fiber optic cable will be installed.
  • Construction is estimated to begin in June and to be completed by September of 2018.
  • Customers will begin enjoying the benefits of fiber in the fall of 2018.
  • New Albin residents can expect to see vehicles/workers from AcenTek, CNS and Central Cable throughout the life of the project. CNS is the engineering company. The contractor for the project is Central Cable and all splicing and customer cut-overs will be handled by AcenTek.
