Washington State's Leading Non-Profit Wholesale Telecommunications Provider

Northwest Open Access Network (NoaNet) was founded with the understanding that it is critical for communities to have access to high-quality telecommunications technology that is affordable. We have supported retail service providers across the state and nation in providing those services to anchor institutions throughout Washington.  

NoaNet currently operates a fiber optic network throughout Washington state, connecting the local PUDs and other independent communications networks to each other and to the major carrier connection points in Seattle, Spokane, and Portland. This network now supports 61 last-mile providers that serve more than 260,000 customers, many of whom have never before had access to advanced telecommunication services.

Our dynamic team of professionals imagine and implement creative solutions bringing technology to under-served communities.  Through an ever-developing range of services, NoaNet will continue to innovate and maintain a progressive approach to the services we offer. Should a new need arise, NoaNet will aim to meet it.
