April 2021 – Baraboo, WI – Star Connection LLC dba lodgeVision

Star Connection LLC proudly celebrates it’s 25th year in business this year. The company was founded in April of 1996 in the small town of La Valle, WI with just a few employees.  Originally offering Primestar and Dish satellite services, their portfolio now contains over 100 service providers, including data, voice and cloud services . Star Connection currently has retail locations in both Baraboo and Tomah. “I think people realized over the last year that it’s important to shop local as much as you can.  And we are thankful for that” founder Chad Strampe, added. 


With a large selection of services and a real focus on customer service at a local level, the customers are more like family.   Relationships are a priority at Star Connection, not just with customers but with the service providers as well.  Star Connection was noticed by Dish nationally and recognized as the DISH Excellence Business Retailer of the Year for 2018 & 2019 years. The 1st time there has been a back-to-back winner! Star Connection received honor due to its outstanding performance among thousands of dealers across the United States.  “We have achieved this milestone through the hard work and dedication of our team throughout the entire organization.” Chad Strampe, says.  


In 2012, Star Connection realized the need for specialized services to the Hospitality and healthcare industries.  lodgeVision was born out of this idea and the same philosophy of customer service with a family mentality was applied.  “If you provide a great customer experience, word-of-mouth referrals will happen naturally. The majority of our business comes from our existing customers:” Chad Strampe explained- lodgeVision now has a national footprint and includes installations in over 30 states, including companies such as UnityPoint, SSM health, Choice Hotels, and Drury Hotels just to name a few.
