New LaGrange LigTel facility

LigTel hosted an open house at its new LaGrange facility two weeks ago. The new office and data center is located at 513 W. Central Ave. in LaGrange.

LAGRANGE — Ligonier-based communications company LigTel Communications was already looking to expand its fiber optic footprint in Northeast Indiana when the coronavirus pandemic landed, proving just how important high-speed internet connectivity has become.

With more work being done from home, and more education taking place online, having a fast, reliable Internet connection is no longer a luxury, but is now essential. The state has created new programs aimed at making reliable, high-speed internet service come to rural Indiana, and it is providing companies like LigTel funds to help make that happen.
