How Fiber Works

HOW IDAHO FALLS FIBER WORKS:

Idaho Falls Fiber (IFF) is a fiber optic infrastructure owned by Idaho Falls Power (IFP). Utilizing light to transfer information, fiber provides the one of the fastest communication technology on the planet. Most high speed Internet networks operate on copper wire infrastructure. The copper infrastructure limits the speed and amount of information that can be transferred. IFF connections may have the ability to reach speeds 30 times faster than your current connection. Plus, you enjoy the same fast-as-light performance for parallel download and upload speeds.  IFF provides a great infrastructure which allows you to have the flexibility to choose and change your Internet Provider, keeping the same infrastructure.

FREEDOM WITH A CHOICE:

IFF lets you choose your own Internet Provider so you’re not limited to just one option. The connection to your home is also yours alone—you’ll never lose speed through a shared connection with another home or business.

THE FUTURE WITH FIBER:

IFF is structured to integrate new technology as it is developed in the future, minimizing the risk of obsolescence and allowing for increased capabilities. IFF is also compatible with wireless connections where necessary or requested. Plus, IFF also makes new technologies more feasible through high-speed connections, such as:

  • Distance education
  • Real time video conferencing
  • Telecommuting & Home Businesses
  • Interactive gaming
  • Remote data storage and retrieval
  • Whole home automation
  • Security
  • Virtual reality
