fiber in groundToday, high speed internet is more than just an amenity—it is critical for business, education, and day-to-day activities of all. Recognizing this, the City, Sandpoint Urban Renewal and Bonner County have partnered to install fiber optic cabling throughout downtown Sandpoint and in the industrial areas surrounding the Forest Bird Airport.  This critical infrastructure will not only connect public facilities such as the court house, county administration, the library and emergency services but will also create an extremely high capacity backbone that internet service providers will be able to utilize—with the goal of bringing affordable, high speed internet to homes throughout Sandpoint.  

The image below represents phase 1 of this backbone.  The City hopes to continue this effort by looping other areas into the system; providing further connectivity and true redundancy of the network.
