About Us


EJ Water Coop. and Wabash Coop. form IFC

Illinois Fiber Connect is an exciting joint venture between two co-ops, Wabash Communications and EJ Water, which brings Fiber-to-the-Home technology to residents around the Midwest. This fiber technology allows our customers to have access to ultra-fast internet with speeds to homes and businesses up to 1 Gbps.

Founded by EJ Water CEO, Bill Teichmiller, and Wabash Communications EVP/GM, Barry Adair, the mission of the joint venture is to provide rural communities access to a stable, secure high-speed internet connection. This will create an incentive for economic development in the area, not only for e-commerce businesses and entrepreneurs trying to work from home, but also to those that want to enjoy living in rural locations and have the same technological luxuries of those who live in suburban America.

Illinois Fiber Connect will schedule the order of fiber installation based on the level of interest expressed by residents.
