About The Pend Oreille County Community Network System

In 1996, the Pend Oreille Public Utility District began developing a sophisticated communications system to keep our electric system safe, reliable, and cost effective. We currently own and operate approximately 125 miles of Fiber Optic Backbone, stretching from Spokane to near the Canadian border.  AND we our currently building over 500 miles of fiber to the premise through a $34 Million Stimulus Grant. The excess system capacity has been made available to our community. The formation of the Community Network System is the District’s successful strategy to bridge the Digital Divide for our communities. Watch video
