We are the Anchor for Technology in the Northwoods
Have the best of both worlds – big city technology combined with all the benefits of small town living.
Three Lakes offers more broadband coverage and provider options than anywhere in the Northwoods. Nearly 90% of our residents have access of up to four providers.
High speed internet is available up to 12 Mbps from Karban TV Systems and up to 9 Mbps through Frontier Communications. Karban offers a cable TV-internet bundle at a reduced price. Frontier continues to expand its DSL offerings and coverage. Two new hubs are planned for east Three Lakes – on Highway 32 north on Chicken-in-the-Woods Road at south down the Col. Himes Road corridors – opening up high speed internet to another third of all homes and property owners.
Wireless service is currently served via Hughes Satellite and 3G through Cellcom Communications and Verizon Wireless. In 2012, SonicNet plans service additions to the northeast and southeast quadrants of the town. We anticipate 4G wireless availability through Cellcom Communications and Verizon Wireless. A third Cellcom tower is planned for late 2012 or Spring 2013 at the new Fire House #2 located at Highway 32 and Col. Himes Road.
In Three Lakes, you can telecommute or operate a business from home while overlooking the greatest fresh water resource in the state. Companies can establish a storefront in our town center, within walking distance of one of the Top 3 libraries in the state, which itself is just down the block from our Top 10 school that believes personalized education partnered with expansive use of technology in the classroom is the pinnacle of a 21st-century education.
