There are currently no stops or access points to this national backbone anywhere in Montana. Local service providers buy access from telecommunication conglomerates like AT&T who route data through GigaPoPs elsewhere across the country.
"Right now if you’re sending an email, for example, it goes from Seattle to Minneapolis and then back to Missoula," Missoula City Councilwoman Caitlin Copple said.
