LCEC helps deliver internet and cellular to barrier islands

October 8, 2022 – LCEC is partnering with Crown Castle to provide a Verizon connection through the fiber optic cables from the LCEC transmission line in Cape Coral. The focus of this collaboration is to restore internet and cellular service to Pine Island and Sanibel-Captiva Island. LCEC is also working with Comcast and Lumen to provide access to the islands through LCEC fiber optic circuits. This work with the Verizon towers is anticipated to be completed in very near future.

LCEC is proud to work in unison with these companies to enable them to quickly restore internet and cellular service to our precious barrier islands after their facilities were ravaged during Hurricane Ian.
