Find out what LS Networks' new fiber network cluster means for your business.
We are excited to activate the first in a series of strategic fiber network clusters in Salem, Oregon on March 20th, 2020.
The two-year long project brings more than 20 miles of fiber to Oregon’s state capitol. Moving forward, Salem's businesses will gain access to:
Our fiber network will enhance Salem businesses' connectivity – facilitating work, communications, and more.
In the best of all possible worlds, all communication pathways would be 100% fiber-optic internet. Fiber allows data to move at the highest speeds and with the fewest obstacles of any data connectivity product in the world.
Legislators and business leaders in the state capitol recognize the need for underserved communities to compete in regional, national, and world economies using the very best communication and productivity tools available.
Fiber-optic network expansion in Salem will greatly enhance delivery of vital services and create a model for fiber-optict expansion across the region.
Fiber-optic cluster architecture turns the old model of “fiber to an anchor tenant” on its head. This new model prebuilds fiber infrastructure within a defined geography to make it easier and faster to connect businesses to LS Network’s regional network backbone. This strategy is unique because it is a commitment from the provider to invest into an area prior to having any customers lined up for service. With a fiber cluster, businesses can get carrier-class connectivity in less time, and they can layer on additional products without multiple service installations. It’s a game-changer.
Headquartered in Portland, Ore., LS Networks owns and operates the largest, locally-owned, fiber-optic network in the Pacific Northwest. We bring connectivity built for the most demanding organizations to underserved and rural communities in Oregon and Washington to create enhanced access and economic growth.
Our shareholders are a collective of rural, electric cooperatives, and our vision is to connect the rural communities they serve to advanced technologies – making it easier to live, work, and play.
