Idaho: Pocatello views Idaho Falls' municipal fiber network with envy

From the Idaho State Journal:
"The way Ray Burstedt sees it, businesses just got one more reason to locate in Idaho Falls, and Pocatello should consider playing catch-up, even though it would mean spending about $11 million. The latest item on a list of things which Idaho Falls has and Pocatello wants is a 50-mile network of fiber-optic cable, a technology which transmits data faster and better by shooting laser beams through human hair-sized lines.

Idaho Falls uses the recently-completed fiber-optic system for municipal purposes and leases so-called dark fiber, unused lines, to private companies to defray costs."
