Our team is putting in long hours as we seek to serve our community with the services you need currently. We are responding to the COVID-19 crisis by increasing our efforts to ensure connectivity and safety for all:

  3. Community Outreach: We want to ensure our customers and communities have access to the services they need during this crucial time. We are enacting these initiatives to promote quality connections for all:
    • PK-12 Student Distance Learning Program – If your household has children enrolled in a PK-12 school, you currently do not subscribe to internet service from LPC Connect and you can demonstrate financial hardship that prevents you from obtaining broadband services required for distance learning, you may be eligible for special pricing. Please call us; we are here to facilitate distance learning.
    • Help – COVID-19 is affecting people in many ways, some of them economic. If you are struggling to pay your bill, call for assistance.
    • Unlimited Data and Robust Speeds – As people do the vital work of staying at home to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the need for internet-related services is increasing. As always, we offer our broadband customers unlimited data with no data caps or overages. LPC Connect also delivers a variety of speed options and we can quickly provision internet upgrades remotely. Customers should contact us for more broadband speed and WiFi options.
    • Expanded Lineup – We have added four popular news channels to our FusionTV Local Plus package for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis.

Our network is handling the increased Internet traffic very well. If your service is not meeting your needs, please reach out, and we will do all we can to improve your Internet and communications connections.

Our employees are dedicated to serving our community with excellence. It is encouraging to see everyone demonstrating resilience and working cohesively. Together, we’ll see our way through this challenging time and thrive again.”
