If you have questions before or during your installation, contact our Customer Service Department at 208-612-8725. If you have questions after your install, contact your Internet Provider. They will be able to assist you with any issues you may be experiencing.
If you want Wi-Fi running throughout your home, you will need a wireless router. Idaho Falls Fiber does not provide routers so you will need to provide your own. For a list of router options, click here. Be sure to purchase a router capable of handling at least 1Gbps of speed. Customers should also contact their Internet Provider about router recommendations or options. Some providers may have specific requirements.
An ONT (Optical Network Terminal) is the only standard equipment that we install. If you order telephone service, a Telephone Adapter (TA) will also be installed.
The only requirement is that we install the equipment near a power source. Aside from that, we recommend that it is installed out of the way, where it cannot be easily tampered with or damaged, but is still accessible to you or a technician. The ONT is mounted to the wall. Many times, we install in utility rooms, garages, and home offices.
The inside equipment covers roughly 16 x 12 inches.
Each potential Fiber address has been previously engineered and assigned as overhead or underground. How we run our fiber into your home typically is determined by how the power enters the home.
If your utilities run from power poles into your home, our crew will typically follow those power lines as well. Simple as that. Your installation can be scheduled as early as the next day depending on availability.
Two different crews will do the install in two steps. The first crew will trench and install conduit prior to the services installation. You do not need to be home for our crews to install conduit in your yard. The second crew will run the fiber from the Fiber box through the conduit to the inside of your home, usually through the cold air return, and install any necessary equipment in your home. They will also test your speeds to make sure everything is running smoothly and set up correctly.
A site survey is a free walk through service where one of our team members will walk you through where the fiber line will run on your property. They will also determine where to install our equipment in your home.
Yes. Residents can connect in the future without having to have ever been connected before.
No. The only time a resident is charged is if they are using the fiber. Resident will also not have to pay for the installation of the fiber network in the area.
UTOPIA is a Utah-based not-for-profit-entity, similar to Idaho Falls Power that is partnering with us to help design and engineer the residential network infrastructure and manage the open access network. They are NOT an internet service provider
Local Internet Providers! A public-private partnership was established between Idaho Falls Power (IFP) and local Internet Providers. IFP in partnership with UTOPIA will provide the fiber and manage the open access network. Local Internet Providers will provide the data service to residents through the locally managed network. Residents will not only have access to high-speed broadband, but they will also be able to choose whichever provider and service package they desire.
No. Idaho Falls Power and Idaho Falls Fiber only install the fiber, maintain and manage the physical infrastructure, not the actual internet service. Our utility has over 119 years of experience with maintaining similar reliable infrastructure.
Idaho Falls Power is a “not for profit” utility that already owns utility poles, utility easements, underground conduit, and hundreds of miles of existing fiber that could be used to provide the backbone connectivity for a community-wide fiber optic service. Because of this existing infrastructure already in place, IFP believes it can run the fiber for far less cost than what it would cost others.
Yes. Monitoring, metering and response for IFP purposes will only take a tiny portion of the available bandwidth available through fiber. Local Internet Service Providers can utilize the significant remaining capacity to provide data service to residents.
Change and innovation in the electric utility business require enhanced connectivity to customers. In the near future IFP will have the need to use fiber technology to connect to customers in order to provide advanced metering systems, demand response, time-of-day pricing and outage response and restoration. In addition, there has been increasing demand from residents to provide residential fiber service for their use in additional internet connectivity. A great many residents also want the option to work at home with state of the art speed and reliability.
There are over five hundred and fifty (550) connected fiber locations in the city used by twenty (20) different business customers. While the city provides the fiber, Local Internet Providers “light” the fiber, or provide the data service to the businesses.
Yes. Idaho Falls has operated a fiber optic enterprise using a “dark fiber” model since 2002. We provide and maintain the fiber while other entities light it with their data and electronics. We do not currently have fiber in residential neighborhoods.
Data transferred via fiber is transmitted by light. So to “light” fiber means to activate it or transmit data through it.
Dark fiber is a strand of unlit fiber that is available for use and is not currently transmitting data.
Fiber is distributed throughout the city in one of two ways. It is strung along poles with existing overhead power lines or it is buried underground, within existing or new conduits.
High speed, broadband data connectivity is essential for business and economic development. It is the future of digital communication and essential for the growth and success of business, government and education
Fiber, or fiber optic line, is actually a thin strand of glass that is stretched to great length and can conduct light similar to the way a wire conducts energy. The light that flows through the glass fiber carries data. A powerful advantage to fiber is that this light travels at the speed of light—making fiber the fastest available method for data delivery.
is contemplating a wind project with other public power entities through the Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems organization. A site east of Idaho Falls is under investigation for the potential wind project. That project could advance to construction as early as the end of 2010.
As an entity of the City of Idaho Falls, we follow the City's and EIPH's COVID requirements and regulations. At this time, the City and Bonneville County are recommending, but not requiring mask usage by patrons in City & County facilities. We're also doing our standard cleaning procedures which we implemented last year so rest assured things will be in tip-top shape for your visit. If you see something of concern, let a staff member know so we can look into it. In terms of timed entry, we found last year we only reached max capacity once or twice the entire season so it wasn't an issue for us at all to just allow general admission. If you're looking for days that tend to have a little less attendance, we recommend mid-week.
Only ADA-trained dogs are allowed in the zoo and must be current on vaccines to access exhibits in the exotic cat loop- i.e. lions,tigers, snow leopards and servals. These animals are susceptible to certain dog diseases that can be prevented only by vaccination.

These experts, called the AZA Accreditation Commission, carefully examine each zoo that applies for AZA membership, including living environments, social groupings, heath and nutrition. The AZA also make sure that animals are provided with enrichment, which stimulates each animal's natural behavior and provides variety in their daily routine. The Idaho Falls Zoo prides itself on continuing to maintain these high standards.
No alcohol is allowed in the zoo. Alcohol is only allowed in the zoo during select special events when permits, insurance and alcohol licenses have been obtained and approved.

Every year, the City re-negotiates medical, dental, and vision insurance rates for the upcoming fiscal year, beginning October 1. Due to an increase in medical claim activity over the past year, the bid for 2020/2021 from our current carrier, Blue Cross, was 14.5% or $1,557,000 higher than 2019/2020. The City analyzed cost alternatives to the Blue Cross plan, including joining an association of municipalities in Southeast Idaho in an attempt to leverage potential cost savings with a higher number of covered lives. Bids were received from multiple insurance companies and while some plans were less expensive, they did not provide the continuity of services Blue Cross has continued to provide to City employees. In addition to increased costs to the health care plan along with forecasted financial impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City is faced with a tight overall budget for the rest of this fiscal year, extending into the 2020/2021 fiscal year. As a result, City Council has determined that the only viable option with the current circumstances is to pass on a higher percentage of insurance costs to employees. This decision was not taken without a great deal of discussion of the impacts to the employees.Despite the raised employee premiums and plan modifications, the City still has a generous and highly competitive employee benefits package.
There are only two things that MUST be renewed every year:

It means that Blue Cross has evaluated their in-network providers and found those providers who have been more successful in keeping patient and prescriptions costs down while providing excellent health care. These effective providers are classified as Choice. On this Open Enrollment webpage, there are documents that describe how to search for a Choice provider on the Blue Cross website.

Refer to the premiums chart available on the Open Enrollment webpage to see the premiums for the plan year 2020-2021.
No. The deductibles remain the same, but the out-of-pocket coinsurance maximum has changed. See the out-of-pocket coinsurance maximum question below for further explanation.
The total cost of the insurance premium is split between the City and the employees. For the PPO, the City pays 86% of the total cost and the employees pay 14%.
The out-of-pocket coinsurance is the maximum amount the individual pays after the deductible is met. For example, an individual on the PPO would pay their deductible of $1,000, then 50% of the allowed amounts up to the out-of-pocket coinsurance maximum. For the individual, this out-of-pocket coinsurance maximum amount is $1,500.
In other words, on the PPO, an individual will pay the $1,000 deductible, then their portion of allowed amounts up to $1,500 for a total out-of-pocket of $2,500 (see equation below).
On the PPO, a family will pay the $1,000 deductible for up to 3 family members, then their portion of allowed amounts up to $4,500 for a total out-of-pocket of $7,500 (see equation below).
$3,000(1,000 x 3 family members)
The providers have been distinguished by in-network or out-of-network. Now the added distinction of being “Choice” has been added to help you save money on doctor’s visit co-pays.

The prescriptions are now on a 6 Tier schedule. This helps the consumer save money by opting for not only generic medications, but Blue Cross Choice generic drugs where possible. If your medications cost less than the co-pay, you pay the lower amount.
Additionally, there is a $250 deductible on the name brand medications which are the Tier 3, 4, 5, and 6 medications.
Here is where the prescriptions are listed:
In general, the changes are the split between the City and the Employee share of the cost; the monthly premiums; an addition of $100 to the deductible per IRS requirements; and the out-of-pocket coinsurance maximums. See below for more information on each of these.
The total cost of the insurance premium is split between the City and the employee. For the HSA, the City pays 94% of the total cost and the employee pays 6%.
Refer to the Premiums chart available on the Open Enrollment webpage to see the premiums for the plan year 2020-2021.
IRS guidelines have required an increase of $100 to the HSA deductible. For an individual on the HSA, the new deductible is $2,800. For a family on the HSA, the new deductible is $5,600.
The out-of-pocket coinsurance is the maximum amount the individual pays after the deductible is met. For example, an individual on the HSA would pay their deductible of $2,800, then 80% of the allowed amounts up to the out-of-pocket coinsurance maximum. For the individual, this out-of-pocket coinsurance maximum amount is $2,000.
On the HSA, an individual will pay the $2,800 deductible, then their portion of allowed amounts up to $2,000 for a total out-of-pocket of $4,800 (see equation below).
On the HSA, a family will pay the $2,800 deductible for up to 2 family members, then their portion of allowed amounts up to $4,000 for a total out-of-pocket of $9,600 (see equation below).
$5,600(2,800 x 2 family members)
