At Lit Communities, we believe three key things about communities like yours:
- You deserve access to the healthcare, educational, and economic benefits that a fiber network can provide, especially in a world rapidly reshaped by COVID-19.
- You shouldn’t have to shoulder the burden of exploring, funding, building, or servicing a network on your own.
- You don’t have time to research and round up multiple companies to piece together a solution that works for you.
We start by offering in-depth community assessments that end in an actionable plan for connecting your community. From there, we can provide support with RFPs and referrals, or we can offer a complete turnkey network solution. We can even launch a local Internet Service Provider brand to keep network control and jobs in your community.
We’ve connected communities across the United States. Draw from our experience and get the exact level of support you need – from action-focused consulting services to turnkey networks with a locally-launched ISP. Visit Lit Communities to learn more.
