The construction project will bring much needed state-of-the-art Internet service to the residents and businesses of Spirit Lake.

COEUR D’ALENE, ID – March 15, 2023 — Intermax Networks, a North Idaho leader in residential and business internet, phone, and IT managed services, has announced a major expansion of their Fiber Optic network into the City of Spirit Lake, Idaho. The project is in the final stages of permitting and engineering, and construction is set to begin in April.

“Spirit Lake is a gem of a city in Kootenai County with a small town feel and wonderful people,” said Mike Kennedy, President and CEO of Intermax. “We have many good customers in Spirit Lake already, and we are happy to be building a new Fiber Optic internet system to continue to expand their choices for connectivity,” Kennedy added.

Spirit Lake’s Mayor Jeremy Cowperthwaite has been helping encourage the project and stands ready to assist in any way possible to improve services to his city. “Our town has nearly everything a person could want, but I am continuing the work to help improve Spirit Lake’s infrastructure”, Mayor Cowperthwaite said. “Citizens have told me of their desire for better quality internet service. Intermax is a good match as a local company to bring Fiber-to-the-Home service to our residents and businesses,” Cowperthwaite continued.

Intermax’s ISP Sales and Marketing Manager Jamè Davis explained: “The project will begin this month now that final permits and right of way agreements are being secured. We expect the first customers to be able to be connected early in the summer.”

Fiber-to-the-Home is considered state of the art in Internet infrastructure and service. Spirit Lake residents and businesses will be able to get access to gigabit-speed internet connections at affordable prices with local service and support. The Spirit Lake City project will be constructed in four initial phases with an estimated completion within 12 months for those phases. Residents living nearby and/or outside the city limits can put themselves on a list for future expansion as the city project gets constructed.

Local residents in Spirit Lake are encouraged to sign up for installation at the following web address: Intermax will be providing construction updates via the web and by email as the project gets underway and throughout.
