Blackfoot's Core Network

Blackfoot’s core network spans Western Montana and Eastern Idaho and covers more than 9,000 square miles. Connecting rural Montana and Idaho can be challenging, but our knowledge of the terrain provides a unique viewpoint to help optimize connectivity. Our network is strategically designed for uptime, reliability, redundancy, and geographic diversity. With our mission to connect people, businesses, and communities, we’re also actively expanding our fiber network. Blackfoot is currently working on a multi-year, multi-million-dollar network upgrade project to connect rural areas with fiber.
