Fatbeam Lands $2 million Fiber Contract

— Fatbeam, LLC has recently closed a deal with a regional carrier that will place 100 route miles of fiber from Liberty Lake to Bonners Ferry. The new fiber network agreement, which is valued at an estimated $2 million, will connect Eastern Washington to North Idaho within miles of the Canadian border, and discussions are already in place to connect the network to Canadian carriers.

Also, in 2017 Fatbeam won a fiber service contract with Boundary County School District (BCSD) to deliver broadband service between its school locations. The project earned accolades from the Federal Communications Commission board and staff as a rural broadband success in North Idaho. The BCSD project is heavily reliant on state matching funds provided by a broadband bill championed by Idaho State Rep. Luke Malek.

Fatbeam is the industry leader in the western U.S. in delivering fiber infrastructure for best-in-class connectivity to schools, businesses, healthcare and governments in rural and mid-sized communities. The company currently operates networks with nearly 400 fiber route miles in more than 35 markets spanning Idaho, Montana, Washington, Oregon, Wyoming, Arizona and Nevada.
