Since 2002, Idaho Falls Power (IFP) and Idaho Falls Fiber (IFF) started laying the groundwork for the fiber network. It started with an upgrade to the city’s communication infrastructure as a way to keep costs low. By 2006, the city established a public-private partnership with local Internet Providers and began commercially leasing its dark fiber to providers. This partnership spurred economic growth and competition as a result of providing state-of-the-art connectivity to local businesses. This endeavor’s success has provided connectivity to more than 500 Idaho Falls’ businesses!
Commercial customers interested in learning more on how they can connect to the city’s current fiber optic network are encouraged to contact IFF.
