Mediacom ropes local operator ImOn into Iowa City muni broadband beef

Mediacom has added Cedar Rapids-based ImOn Communications to its lawsuit against Iowa City, alleging the city and the local operator conspired to conduct a municipal broadband project without a franchise agreement.

"After going through some initial documents received from Iowa City via an Iowa Open Records Law request, we felt compelled to add ImOn to our lawsuit against Iowa City," said Mediacom spokesman Thomas Larsen, in an email to FierceInstaller.

Indeed, Mediacom discovered — and shared — a number of email exchanges with city officials and ImOn that reveals a collaboration that the MSO says undermines its own franchise agreement in Iowa City.
