WHO IS DIRECT COMMUNICATIONS
Direct Communications is the premiere regional fiber optic network in southeast Idaho. We are a local, family-owned, independent Idaho fiber broadband company, connecting Idaho residents since 1954. Thanks to Direct Communications, even small rural businesses in Southeast Idaho have been enjoying world-class fiber optic services since 2007, the same year we became the first company in Idaho to bring fiber to the home. We have a very long history of partnering with small towns in Idaho in building out telecommunications infrastructure to improve life for all residents. We constructed our first fiber line through the city of Pocatello in 2001, and for the past decade have carried much of the area data traffic for even much larger national providers over our regional fiber network in southeast Idaho. We have for the past 9 years been installing and providing fiber optic service to city buildings, anchor institutions, businesses, and residents in the towns of Aberdeen, American Falls, Arbon, Bancroft, Bloomington, Downey, Fish Haven, Georgetown, Grace, Lava Hot Springs, Liberty McCammon, Montpelier, Paris, Preston, Rockland, St Charles, and more recently, Pocatello and Chubbuck. We are the local fiber network experts with the knowledge and experience you can trust, and the network you can count on.
As a locally-owned Idaho family-owned business since 1954, we understand Idaho needs, and the challenges and opportunity facing Idaho business owners and residents today.
We are builders and pioneers, with a vision to improve the communications infrastructure throughout Southeast Idaho by connecting businesses, anchor institutions, and towns, and delivering improved services via our state-of -the-art fiber optic network.
For example, we were:
First to provide high-speed Fiber to the home in southeast Idaho.
First to implement a digital switch in Idaho.
First to use fiber optic cable in telephone communications network in Southeast Idaho.
First to provide high-speed Internet to rural southeast Idaho.
First IP switch in Southeast Idaho.
First to offer DBS satellite in Southeast Idaho.
One of the first cellular offerings in Idaho.
Helped build the first and only state-wide fiber optic cable ring network. (We are a founding partner of Syringa Networks).

The Fiber Optic Advantages Are Clear
The fastest connection speed known to man. We currently offer an unmatched 1000 Mbps residential speed to our fiber customers.
Fiber to the home uses a pure ethernet connection back to your ISP, without needing intermediate equipment like a modem. This results in a much more stable, reliable service, which means no downtime for you. Fiber to the home virutally eliminates most equipment issues, and downtime typically experienced by internet subscribers.
Unlimited carrying capacity means NO CAPS. The bandwidth, like speed is only limited by the processing power of the electronics on each end of the fiber. We will never cap your data usage, or throttle your speeds. Stream as much video as you like without ever worrying about overages.
Unlike copper, there is no resistance in the fiber optic cable, so the signal can travel much further distances. This means we can now serve even the most remote customers with the same consistent service no matter where where you live.
Because it’s literally light being transmitted, there is no interference from electromagnetic noise such as neighbor’s routers, appliances, radios, motors, power lines, or other nearby cables. This means a clearer signal and better broadband connection for you. Even lighting strikes, which can be transmitted by copper cabling, are not transmitted by fiber-optic cable.
Fiber optic cables costs less to maintain than traditional copper lines, saving us all time and money.
