BURNS, Ore. (PRWEB) January 22, 2016
LSN, an Oregon telecommunications company based in Portland and owned exclusively by Oregonians, will participate in a Town Hall event on March 7, 2016 in conjunction with the Harney County Economic Development Office (HCED) to discuss expanding fiber infrastructure in Burns, Oregon. LSN already has a significant network deployed in Harney County, providing data transport and broadband internet services to education, government, judicial and healthcare facilities.
The goal of the Town Hall is to evaluate the level of community support for increased fiber services. If feedback supports it, LSN will explore a program to build additional fiber infrastructure, expanding the availability of affordable broadband services to customers in the community.
“Increased fiber infrastructure could provide added incentive to the business recruitment and expansion programs currently in place at Harney County Economic Development,” said HCED Executive Director Randy Fulton.
“We see a great opportunity to expand our fiber services and availability throughout Burns and Harney County,” said LSN CEO Michael Weidman. “We look forward to establishing the presence of affordable, high-quality broadband access to new businesses and public sector customers in the area.”
LSN is completing a network augmentation that is capable of providing Burns with 200 Gbps of bandwidth by March 2016, and working with local providers on increasing bandwidth speeds for residential use. With this expansion, LSN looks forward to providing seamless network services into local businesses and organizations.
Founded in Oregon, LSN is committed to serving businesses throughout the rural Northwest with the high-caliber equipment and network connectivity that other carriers deploy only in metropolitan areas. The LSN network is designed to deliver data and voice services to any size institution, organization or campus in the Pacific Northwest.
