OPALCO began providing Island Network Internet services and advanced Ethernet services to a limited number of public organizations and targeted businesses. San Juan County subscribed to the first gigabit link between the County Courthouse and the Carlson Building. Island Network provided services to Northwest Open Access Network (NoaNet); school districts on Orcas, Lopez, and Shaw; the University of Washington Labs; and public libraries on Orcas and Lopez Islands.
