This years "Capitol Christmas Tree" stands at 79 feet tall and comes from our own Kootenai National Forest here in Montana! - The lighting ceremony took place last night and an 11 year old boy named Ridely helped the Speaker of the House count down bringing the lights on! - The tree will light every night from now until the New Year Day!

SCAM ALERT! - Dec 4th 2017

A text message or email, claiming to be Walmart and saying "Dear client Interbel Telephone Cooperative inc., congratulations! - We would like to thank you for your loyalty to Interbel Telephone Cooperative inc., and thus we offer an exclusive chance to get an Walmart $1000 Gift card today"

It goes on to give the date and information for how you can win the prize (saying you need to select the correct gift box) -

THIS IS A SCAM! - This has nothing to do with InterBel and we are sure nothing to do with Walmart. We suggest that you do not open this message or email.



It's that time of year! - Once again InterBel Telephone is looking for the best photos of events, activities and scenery in the Tobacco Valley!

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.
