Bridging Communities with Cutting-Edge Connectivity

In 1954, the entrepreneurial spirit of the Cascade Commercial Club, a collective of visionary businessmen, ignited a transformative journey in the small town of Cascade. Recognizing the importance of reliable telephone services for their community, the Commercial Club convened numerous meetings to deliberate on the matter. Determined to elevate communication standards, they established the Ad Hoc Telephone Service committee tasked with researching viable solutions. After careful evaluation, the committee arrived at a unanimous decision – the most effective way to enhance service was to acquire the telephone system and implement their own improvements.

During the fall of that pivotal year, the Cascade Commercial Club took a bold step forward, purchasing the telephone company and laying the foundation for what would later become known as Cascade Communications Company. Guided by a seven-member Board of Directors, the company’s leaders have always remained dedicated to upholding the unparalleled quality of service and products that customers have come to expect.

Throughout the decades, Cascade Communications has evolved in tandem with technological advancements, consistently striving to provide the latest innovations to its customers. In 2000, the company introduced DSL services, opening the doors to Broadband internet access for the community. In 2002, the company moved to a new location, just across the street from its original building that had served as its home for over 48 years.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2004, Cascade Communications commemorated half a century of providing essential communication services to the local area. The company’s commitment to excellence has remained unwavering, continuing to meet the needs of the community and beyond.

A defining moment in Cascade Communications’ history arrived in 2009 when the company initiated the ambitious project of building a “Fiber To The Home” (FTTH) network. This cutting-edge fiber-optic technology brought unprecedented, exclusive benefits to the residents and businesses of Cascade. By providing incredible speed, crystal-clear connections, and an array of services over a single connection, FTTH revolutionized the communication landscape in the region.

In 2017, Cascade Communications achieved a momentous milestone, completing the expansion of its Fiber Network to cover all customers in Cascade and Otter Creek. The transition from traditional copper wires to FTTH was a game-changer, positioning the company as a technology leader in the area and offering maximum speed and reliability to its users.

Not resting on its laurels, Cascade Communications remained committed to progress. In 2023, inspired by the needs of another community, Monticello, for consistent and reliable internet, Cascade Communications made a conscious decision to further expand its reach. By bringing fiber optics to the entire town of Monticello, the company will continue its mission to bridge communities with top-of-the-line connectivity solutions.

Since its founding, Cascade Communications has upheld its commitment to delivering local, high-quality services and products that exceed the expectations of its valued customers. As a trailblazer in deploying fiber broadband since 2009, the company has continuously extended its reach to benefit rural areas of Iowa, ensuring consistent and reliable communication services for all.

At Cascade Communications, the vision is clear – to be the trusted local provider of affordable, high-quality communication services, connecting rural communities and surrounding areas with state-of-the-art technology. This commitment enables people to stay connected and thrive in today’s digital world.

Driven by a forward-looking mission, Cascade Communications leads the way in telecommunications by offering state-of-the-art products and services to its customers. The company places exceptional local customer service at the forefront of its operations, continually delivering value to shareholders through continuous innovation and improvement. Utilizing its robust fiber optic network, Cascade Communications strives to be the technology leader in its community, providing enhanced connectivity not only to its customers but also to neighboring communities, meeting their ever-growing connectivity needs, and fostering progress in the digital era.
