Syringa Networks, a provider of fiber optic telecommunications services, says it will bring faster Internet to Pocatello, ID, businesses. Syringa Networks recently completed a new Central Office (CO) and co-location space in Pocatello and is finishing connections to the new facility with fiber optic service from its existing 400 Gbps backbone network.
Pocatello businesses can look forward to faster internet in spring 2012, Syringa Networks asserts, after having an unofficial reputation as the city with the slowest Internet in the U.S. Also, construction begins this fall on a 41-mile, high-count fiber ring in Pocatello and surrounding areas. This multi-million dollar project has been awarded to a contractor and permitting is in progress.
Pocatello businesses will soon have access to a fiber optic network that can deliver speeds up to 10 Gbps per customer. The project is scheduled for a spring 2012 completion.
"This investment echoes the investment in infrastructure we recently completed in Idaho Falls," said Greg Lowe, Syringa Networks CEO.
Syringa Networks was founded in 2002 by 12 rural telecommunications companies, committed to bringing new technology to underserved communities.
