Our Team

The partnership of Crosslake Communications and ECTC brings over 135 years of experience in the telecommunications industry. Crosslake Communications and ECTC provide the areas of Crosslake, Manhattan Beach, Emily, Fifty Lakes, Fairfield and Little Pine Townships with broadband, video and voice services.


Crosslake Communications provides high speed internet, cable TV, local and long distance phone service, home monitoring, and computer repair service to the Crosslake, Minnesota area.

We are small, nimble and really understand telecom. It means you’re going to get service unlike anything you can get from one of those huge telecoms.

The owners of Crosslake Communications also have a rich history in the industry and understand how important access to technology is for you. They are committed to furthering fiber optic access to as many Crosslake areas as quickly as possible.

Crosslake Communications is owned by Tri-Co Technologies, a partnership which includes three Minnesota-based telecommunications providers, BEVCOMM, headquartered in Blue Earth, MN, West Central Telephone Association, headquartered in Sebeka, MN and Emily Cooperative Telephone Company of Emily, MN.
