About Us


Rock Island Communications provides modern, scalable and reliable broadband services to homes and businesses in San Juan County. We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of Orcas Power & Light Cooperative. Started in 1996, Rock Island has been serving the interests of our local community for over 20 years.


Our latest mission involves bringing fiber optic broadband to the home, lighting up a T-Mobile LTE network countywide and delivering a way for our county’s first responders to communicate in hard-to-reach-places. No small feet indeed. In our first year of the project, we’ve accomplished an incredible amount of work, and we are poised to wage forward this year stronger than ever!
