Kaniksu Internet is excited to be running fiber in select communities! While we have shown people that wireless internet can be a fast and reliable solution for internet access, we also understand that some areas either don't have a good view of our wireless equipment, or have unique needs that are better met with fiber.
We are almost complete with construction in Clark Fork and have finalized our agreements with Hope, East Hope and Kootenai, and expect to be able to start construction on our fiber project in the next couple months.
We have started putting together a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) based on the conversations we have had with people. We are including the commong questions below for you to review.Sign Up for Kaniksu Fiber
How much will it cost to install?
The cost to install fiber to your home will vary some, mostly depending on the difficulty in getting the fiber optic cable from the street to your home or business. Before we start your installation, we will provide you with an estimate, where we will go over how we recommend getting the fiber cable from the street. With a standard installation, we don't anticipate it being more than $250, in many cases it will be less.
When will it be available at my address?
We want to get everyone as soon as possible, however circumstances will allow us to get started in Clark Fork first. We expect to start in Hope, East Hope and Kootenai as soon as possible, weather permitting.
How will you run the fiber?
We recognize that this is a view community, and we want to do our part to help preserve your view. We will run the fiber underground, wherever reasonably and economically possible. There are locations where terrain or other factors do not make it a good option, but will do our best to stay underground.
What speeds and how much will it cost?
We have our fiber plans published on our website. Click on the appropriate link below-
What if fiber isn't available immediately for my address?
