Syringa Networks Brings Fast Internet Speeds to Idaho Businesses

POCATELLO, IDAHO — Pocatello once had the dubious distinction of being the city with the slowest Internet in the U.S. Now, businesses there can look forward to having access to high-speed broadband.

Syringa Networks, a regional provider of high-speed fiber optic telecommunications services, recently completed a new central office and colocation space in Pocatello and is finishing connecting the new facility to fiber optic service from its existing 400 Gbps backbone. Construction begins this fall on a 41-mile, high-count fiber ring in Pocatello and surrounding areas. This multimillion dollar project has been awarded to a contractor, and permitting is in progress.

Once the network is complete, Pocatello businesses will have access to a self-healing fiber optic network that can deliver speeds up to 10 Gbps per customer. The project is scheduled to be completed in spring 2012 — ideal for companies planning next year’s information technology budgets. As a result of this work, Pocatello businesses will have access to the most extensive MPLS network in the state.

“This investment echoes the investment in infrastructure we recently completed in Idaho Falls,” says Greg Lowe, CEO of Syringa Networks. “We’re excited to serve Pocatello, and we’re serious about giving businesses the best Internet and high speed network options.” Lowe added, “Our ongoing investment in Idaho communities is a direct reflection of our core values—creating growth and opportunity for the communities we serve.”

Syringa Networks was founded in 2002 by 12 rural telecommunications companies that were committed to bringing state-of-the art technology to underserved communities. Expanding into Pocatello is a natural fit for the company because it connects Idaho’s fourth-largest city to the Syringa Networks backbone.
