LightSpeed Networks Expands High Speed Internet Service to Vernonia

Portland based telecommunications company LightSpeed Networks (LSN) is pleased to announce the expansion of its service area to include Vernonia. The expansion was initiated in collaboration with the Oregon Health Network to deliver internet services to Greater Oregon Behavioral Health, Inc.’s Bridge Street Clinic.

LSN, one of the Pacific Northwest’s fastest growing telecommunications companies, has extended its fiber optic network into Vernonia. LSN’s recent growth into Vernonia reflects the company’s goal of selectively expanding its network infrastructure to support the growing demands of its commercial and wholesale customers. As a fiber-based Network Operator, LSN will offer competitively priced and customizable network solutions to Vernonia’s business community, and healthcare providers, municipal government offices and local schools.

LSN’s Vernonia Point of Presence is located in facilities belonging to West Oregon Electric Cooperative (WOEC), one of LSN’s largest shareholders. Network expansion into Vernonia began as a result of LSN’s latest work with the Oregon Health Network (OHN), a statewide organization focused on health IT. LSN is proud to contribute to the OHN telehealth infrastructure and improve connectivity at Greater Oregon Behavioral Health, Inc.’s Vernonia clinic. This initiative demonstrates the core mission of LSN to provide cost effective, high quality services to all Oregon residents. One of the ways LSN accomplishes this aim is by partnering with local and regional service providers, as well as other entities like OHN.
