The Communications Access Cooperative is the owner and operator of a fiber-optic network running the length of the Hood River Valley from the Bonneville Power Administration transmission lines in Parkdale to the waterfront in Hood River, with Points-of-Presence in Parkdale, Odell, and Hood River. CACHE interconnects with our partner and upstream provider LSNetworks in Portland over BPA fiber.

Direct fiber-optic connections for internet access and ethernet transport are available in many locations in the Hood River Valley. Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH/FTTx) projects are being discussed to augment or supplant our fixed-wireless infrastructure in some areas.
