Broadband & Telecommunication Division
The LeCom Broadband Communications Team was founded in 1980 when the burgeoning cable television industry began its expansion into the Detroit metropolitan area. We were the conduits for numerous cable providers, helping them secure franchise agreements from local municipalities and working with them to wire neighborhoods with coaxial cable. In a five-year period, our highly skilled technicians connected more than 250,000 households. We wired the 138-square mile City of Detroit twice – both times ahead of schedule and under budget.
Communications and Installation Team
As the telecommunications industry exploded in the 1990’s, driven by technology advancements and de-regulation, utility poles in America’s neighborhoods became crowded. To address over capacity, major electrical energy providers enacted stringent standards regarding the joint use and placement of lines on these poles. With our significant experience and sterling reputation for installing coaxial cable and fiber optics both overhead and below grade, the energy providers and other utility pole users soon called on Lecom to service, maintain and upgrade the infrastructure to ensure compliance with rules and regulations.
LeCom maintains a specialized fleet of construction equipment, including excavators, trenchers, directional drilling machines, and conduit and wire handling equipment. With our experienced workforce and fleet, we can meet the varied demands of underground installations, from simple subdivision electrical services to high voltage systems several miles in length.
LeCom, through the many years of experience, has become a leading supplier of a broad range of technology, communication system, and electrical system design. LeCom specializes in working with the wireless providers in designing custom turnkey solutions to integrate with a legacy infrastructure and navigate complex regulations.
