Blackfoot began with the idea that when people connect they accomplish more than they do on their own. Named after the Blackfoot River, our roots lied deep in the lasting relationships weve built with our customers. Since 1954, Blackfoot has fostered a reputation based on exceptional customer service, a legacy thats served us well and is reflected in our growing market share. Weve expanded our markets and enhanced our service area and product lines through infrastructure investments and acquisitions. Since 2010, weve invested more than $50 million in broadband infrastructure and given Blackfoot one of the most advanced data backbones in the region. In 2012, we added deep business expertise and broadened our reach by acquiring Cutthroat Communications out of Bozeman, Montana and the Eastern Idaho operations of FairPoint Communications.
