About MiFiber
MiFiber is an Internet services company, originating in the Pacific Northwest and serving both business and residential. Businesses started adopting fiber connectivity before the pandemic. Now, families are learning that with fiber internet, they can build businesses and monetize their creativity and hard work from home. Or they can just comfortably enjoy the most reliable, next generation fast internet. All with the possibility of saving money in the process.
Our vision is to build more fiber internet in underserved communities! We’ve all grown up with different access to the internet, and we know that technology is a necessary component of our families’ futures. So why is it that the small communities must wait for the metropolitan areas first? It is here where the digital divide starts, and our vision begins. Overall, our purpose is to build an internet that everyone trusts.

Now we are investing millions in fiber networks in the Pacific Northwest and partnering with towns and cities to change what communities expect from their Internet service provider. We have already launched Gigabit speed service in Newport WA, Oldtown ID and Priest River ID with many more communities to follow.
