Our vision is to connect rural communities to advanced technologies. Since the beginning, our priority has been to provide service before profit, often investing resources in the communities we serve without immediate financial returns. Our robust, dense data network is purpose built for the Northwest. Every quarter, we add more miles of infrastructure to connect non-metro areas with carrier, enterprise and business grade services tailored to our customer’s needs.

Bridging The Digital Divide
In early 2019, LS Networks completed a $2 million project connecting Maupin, Oregon to LSN’s best-in-the-west fiber optic network. The project brings blinding ONE GIG speeds to Maupin’s 430 residents at prices unheard of nationally. “The new network in Maupin is proof that no town is too small or too remote to connect to cutting edge broadband,” said Governor Kate Brown. “It will allow businesses and individuals in Maupin to grow and add new jobs while helping the school, health care providers, and local government to provide quality services.
Greater Yakima Chamber of Commerce
Historically, the chamber operated internet services through an inconsistent phone line. It was normal to reset the router every week or need to walk away and grab lunch when the system needed to sync to Dropbox. Now, downtown Yakima has high-speed internet for the first time, offering reliable, secure connections. “Working with LS Networks helps us not only keep our costs down, but helps us further our mission to build successful businesses in Yakima County,” said Thane Phelan, Vice President of the Greater Yakima Chamber of Commerce. “Our experience with LS Networks has been practically flawless — from a business relationship and internet delivery perspective. Believe me, it’s made a difference for our business and our community and we highly recommend working with them.”
