Fatbeam Completes Fiber Networks for the Post Falls, ID and Medical Lake, WA SchoolDistricts

Post Falls, ID – May 8th, 2012: Fatbeam, a Competitive Access Provider delivering data transport services to customers in the Pacific Northwest, today announced the completion of two fiber networks that will serve the Post Falls School District in Idaho and Medical Lake School District in Washington State. Fatbeam enjoyed significant cooperation with right-of-way partner Avista in the completion of these networks. Spokane based, Spokane Ditch and Cable, was awarded the contract for construction.

The Post Falls School District network was lit by Fatbeam to carry data up to 2GB between each school site. The Medical Lake School District has chosen to light their own fiber, which hassignificant advantages when it comes time to upgrade bandwidth. “When choosing our dark fiber product, the customer chooses the bandwidth they want by simply installing different equipment at each end to light the fiber. This has significant scalability advantages when compared to the pricing available to most school districts in rural locations for bandwidth”, stated Greg Green, President of Fatbeam.

Additionally, Fatbeam’s Post Falls and Coeur d’Alene networks are in the process of being connected to the TierPoint Data Center in Liberty Lake, Washington – with completion scheduled for the 4Q of 2012. “Extending Fatbeam’s North Idaho fiber connectivity to TierPoint greatly enhances economic development opportunities for the community and provides area businesses with a number of telecommunication provider options typically only available in larger markets”, states Greg Green, President of Fatbeam. Fatbeam’s planned route is diverse from those existing today, which will assist in providing essentialconnectivity for critical path users of data services.
