Back in 1984, our Co-Founder Dan Teachworth started a company named STS aka Satellite Television Services. STS was one of the first businesses in New Orleans to design and install residential satellite systems at people's homes and businesses. After a while, Dan wanted to rebrand the business to The Satellite Center, as he wanted a place for people of New Orleans to go for any of their satellite needs. This grew the company into what it is today. Satellite Center has been involved in many things you see and hear in New Orleans, including the Saints and Pelicans Sports Radio Network, many of the Local News Stations, and mobile uplink trucks for news and sports. Satellite Center also provides TV Service to many of the areas Hotels, Condos, Apartments, and Retirement Communities. Without Satellite Center, LIT Internet would not be where it is today.
LIT Internet was born because Satellite Centers customers were fed up with the big national providers and were looking for a local alternative for their internet access. We took the initiative to find them a solution that we could stand behind.
Furthermore, we had the knowledge and will-power to give the people of Orleans and Jefferson Parish freedom when it came to their internet service. Using our expertise in RF (radio frequency), we began implementing state-of-the-art wireless technology to meet the needs of our customers. We designed a hybrid fiber-wireless network built for the future that gives the people of Louisiana choice for their internet service.
We are now providing all of our customers the white-glove level of customer support and the high-speed connections that are needed in the ever-changing world of the internet.
Our future includes you, our neighbors! As we build out our fiber footprint across the area, we strive to extend that experience to all people. Our state-of-the-art wireless equipment acts as the "last mile" between your home or business to get you online.
Most importantly, we want to make an impact in our communities by ensuring that all people in the Greater New Orleans area have access to high-speed internet, regardless of their income level. There shouldn't be a kid that can't do his homework because the internet isn't reliable, or it's too expensive. We want to change that, and we need your help!
