Gigabit Internet Program Launches for Rural Northwest Communities

LS Networks announced today it will deploy a high-density fiber-optic broadband network in 25 rural communities in Oregon and Washington over the next two years. The program will offer simple broadband plans at 100 Mbps or 1 Gbps speeds for affordable prices. The $1.2 million “Connected Communities” project launched in Maupin, Oregon, in July, and the first services will begin in January 2017.

“Telecommunications is a critical utility service that can either leverage or disenfranchise rural communities,” said Bryan Adams, Director of Sales and Marketing at LS Networks. “We’re committed to providing the infrastructure, operation and maintenance of high-speed voice and data services in support of the economic and educational advances that make communities strong.”

The LS Networks Connected Communities can subscribe to monthly plans starting at $40 for 100 Mbps and $70 for 1 Gbps. LS Networks has built more than 7,500 route miles of high-capacity fiber broadband in Oregon, which already operates as a purpose-built IP services network. The Connected Communities initiative will add significant “last-mile” expansion to the existing network. This directly supports the company’s mission to build in locations where others cannot or will not, with top-tier service for urban and rural communities alike.

“We will continue to invest resources into regions that need it most,” said Adams. “Our priority has always been to provide service before profit and to use telecommunications as a tool to bridge the communities that make the Pacific Northwest great — on both sides of the Cascades.”
