On December 30, 2014, Copper Valley Telecom turned on 4G LTE wireless data at its Lake Louise cell site. The site, located at Mile 10 of the Lake Louise Road, provides voice and data to customers living and traveling around the lake, including lodges, cabins, and the Lake Louise State Recreation Area campground. Tests of the signal resulted in speeds of 10-30 Mbps, the same speeds received from other 4G LTE sites in the Copper Valley and Valdez. Some historically hard to serve spots around the Lake tested at 7 Mbps. The 4G LTE upgrade at Lake Louise was made possible when the company replaced its microwave pathway with ten miles of new fiber optic line on Lake Louise Road.
