Islanders for Islanders


OPALCO, our county power company, began running fiber optic internet throughout San Juan County as a power management project as early as 1999. Ever since then, large institutions and businesses have approached OPALCO to connect to their information superhighway. Dozens of critical institutions such as hospitals, fire stations, libraries, and our larger businesses did get online over the period that spanned from 1999 to 2014 under the internet division within the power co-op.


In 2014, the OPALCO Board made a bold decision to take those years of experience and expand on them to bring powerful communications to the rest of the county. At that time, the internet division was spun out of the co-op, and the stand-alone company quickly purchased a local ISP named Rock Island, who had been in business since 1996 as an Internet Service Provider.
