If you experience internet outages or slow speeds, The City can provide some relief.
The Municipal Building and the Decorah Public Library utilize the Decorah MetroNet, a redundant fiber ring connecting many public and government facilities in Decorah. Because of the true “network” construction of the fiber ring, connection to the Internet is still intact even if other service providers go down. The public is invited to use the WiFi network at either of these public facilities.
