How Blackfoot is Responding to the Coronavirus
Blackfoot has always cared deeply about our customers, whether it’s through our fiber-to-the-premise project or through the events we support within the communities we serve. Supporting the Keep Americans Connected initiative was an easy and quick decision to ensure our customers remain connected during this challenging time. Blackfoot began with the idea that when our communities connect, they will accomplish more together than they can on their own. Our pledge to the Keep Americans Connected initiative underlines this idea — an idea that is just as important today as it was back in 1954.”Jason Williams, Blackfoot CEO
The Keep Americans Connected Pledge
Given the coronavirus pandemic and its impact on the American society, Blackfoot pledges for the next 60 days to:
- Not terminate service to any residential or small business customers because of their inability to pay their bills due to the disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
- Waive any late fees that any residential or small business customers incur because of their economic circumstances related to the coronavirus pandemic.
- Open its WiFi hotspots to any American who needs them.
