In early 2013, Blackfoot acquired Fremont Telcom Co. and Fretel Communications, formerly Idaho properties of FairPoint Communications, Inc. As of September 2016, Blackfoot Telephone Cooperative, Inc., Blackfoot Communications and Fremont Telcom Co. are collectively doing business as “Blackfoot.”
Blackfoot’s high-capacity fiber network spans 8,500 square miles throughout Montana and Idaho. We provide voice and data for thousands of leading businesses and homes in Idaho Falls, Rexburg, St. Anthony, Teton, Ashton, Island Park, with possible expansion in the future. Our 165 employees are dedicated to helping businesses connect, communicate and thrive.
As part of our commitment to serving Eastern Idaho, Blackfoot plans to invest $3.5 million in network improvements over the next several years. The expanded network will bring innovative technology products and services from Blackfoot's successful IP network to the doorstep of eastern Idaho customers and nearby communities.
Blackfoot’s rich history includes serving Western Montana homes and businesses for 60 years. We remain committed to supporting our service areas in ways that matter most. That's just one of the reasons we donated more than $288,000 last year to local charities, schools and organizations that offered economic strength and unity for the community.
Blackfoot’s vision is to become the business and technology leader in the Rocky Mountain West. We offer advanced telecommunications solutions to customers in Western Montana including voice, data, IT and security services. Named after the Blackfoot River running through much of the territory it serves, Blackfoot was originally established in 1954 as Blackfoot Telephone Cooperative and is headquartered in Missoula, Montana. Today, the Blackfoot family of companies include Blackfoot Telephone Cooperative - a member-owned cooperative; Blackfoot Communications - a competitive local exchange company; and TeleSphere Software, Inc. - a wholly-owned subsidiary offering professional services to the telecom industry.
