The Montana Telecommunications Association has put together a great website called that is filled with information on the state of Broadband in Montana.

"...70 percent of InterBel Telephone Cooperative's members
will have fiber installed to the premise by the end of 2016.
Co-op members with a serious need for speed
will be able to subscribe to a gigabit service package".
- Montana Telecommunications Association  

The website has maps and stats, as well as a 2016 State of Rural Broadband in Montana in a PDF format.

Below you will find a great video that helps explain some of the issues facing Montana with its sparse population and vast open spaces, which bring unique challenges that come in building a robust future proof telecommunications network. This video helps one learn the scope of that challenge and what is being done to address it.

After 4+ years, 800 signatures and 2 petitions filed at the FCC…… WE GOT APPROVED IN-FULL by the FCC on August 15, 2016! Click Here for the FCC Approval Document.

Our Cable TV service is no longer assigned to the Spokane DMA, our local networks are now considered to be under the Missoula DMA. Thanks to everyone who wrote letters to our Congressional Representatives in Washington DC, including Senator Tester, Senator Daines, Congressman Zinke (and in prior years, Senator Baucus and Congressman Rehberg)

Our work is not done however, what we have left is to get the same assignment to satellite customers (Direct TV and DISH). It will require another petition filing at the FCC but things should go smoother given our BIG win on the Cable TV side.

We’ll keep you posted as things progress!!
