Malad Fiber Project - UPDATE!

2015-09-211

 

The Malad Fiber Project is progressing rapidly! We’re on schedule to have everyone living within city limits connected by the end of 2015. Crews have been diligently working to bury conduit to homes and businesses – with nearly 95% of customers completed. Meanwhile, our interior wiring specialists have been working with each customer to make sure their home/business is ready for the connection.  Again, nearly 95% of homes are now wired and ready for Fiber. Our next step is jetting the fiber into the conduit routes.  We hope to have this phase completed by November.   Lastly, we will need to splice all the fiber together and soon after we will be ready to hit the “ON” button!  We hope to have the majority of subscribers “turned up” by January 2016.  

We appreciate the opportunity to help boost our communities’ economy with the added technological advantage that only fiber optics can bring. We are proud to be one of the few communities in Idaho to offer fiber to both homes and businesses.  We appreciate the understanding and cooperation of the Malad City crew and the residents of this valley. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. 208-766-2882.

IMPORTANT: If you live within the city limits and we have NOT already buried orange conduit to the exterior of your home, please call us or signup to get on our construction list here.
