FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TRUFIBER TO JOIN DIRECT COMMUNICATIONS FAMILY
Pocatello, ID (August, 9th 2022) – Direct Communications of Rockland, Idaho announced that it has acquired truFiber of Pocatello, Idaho. truFiber’s primary offerings are in fiber internet, and they currently serve more than 3,600 customers in the Pocatello and Chubbuck areas.
“truFiber is a local company that has worked hard to expand their network while creating a reputation of fast and reliable fiber internet,” said Tim May, Owner of Direct Communications. “We feel like this is an ideal acquisition as our values are aligned, and together we will make a significant fiber footprint in the Chubbuck and Pocatello areas.”
Not only do customers have the option to keep the package they have always enjoyed, making the transition seamless, but the acquisition also offers current truFiber customers new, more customized package options if they have been looking for speeds that fit their needs. Instead of paying a higher price for unnecessarily high speed, newer options are available at lower prices for the more casual internet user.
The transition is in motion and will take some time as current customers will need to be moved over to new systems. Patience is requested as these two companies reorganize and merge.
