Ed Izatt – Network Operations Manager

Ed came to LightBurst Broadband in 2008 after twenty three years of working in the telecommunications industry for a engineering firm. During that time he traveled across the country working with dozens of broadband companies to automate their processes. But his heart was always back home with his family, so coming to LightBurst allowed him to come home. 

He loves technology and the challenge of a constantly changing digital landscape. Most of all he loves working with people to show how that technology can improve their lives. While maintaining our IP network is challenging, he has a gift for diagnosing network issues and keeping our Internet services working at top proficiency 24/7. Ed supports not only our network but also supports, services, troubleshoots, and assists our customers in all technical issues.
