Iola City Council members aren’t yet ready to decide on a request to help an internet service provider pay for what would become a citywide fiber-optic network.

The Council was asked Monday by Iola-based KwiKom Communications to pay half the cost of the fiber-optic expansion.

KwiKom already has fiber-optic service through portions of Iola, primarily north of U.S. 54.
