Fiber Across Dam – American Falls
Local Fiber Optic service provider, Direct Communications, is expanding its fiber network through the western part of American Falls to cross over the dam. 1 Gigabit per second Fiber service will now be available to commercial customers along the new fiber route in American Falls, which will be an unprecedented opportunity for businesses in American Falls. The fiber route, which is currently under construction, brings fiber from Direct Communications main fiber hut along the Rockland Highway, then under Interstate 86, then follows McKinley street past the high school, winding through some residential neighborhoods until it reaches the dam wall. The fiber then follows hwy 39 across the dam, to serve business on the other side. Direct Communications hopes to continue to extend this new fiber path all the way to Aberdeen to connect with their existing fiber infrastructure in that town, where they are the local cable company and broadband provider. Commercial customers interested in the new fiber optic service available in American Falls should contact Daniel Parrish at 208 945 8223, or preregister for fiber optic service.
