"These towers used to serve a purpose here. They were used to guide the few visitors who came to Lothal to the spaceports. That was before the Empire. Now the Empire controls most of the traffic in and out, and it has left these old towers empty."
―Ezra Bridger, on the LothalNet communications towers[src]

LothalNet[1] was a vast grid of communications towers located on the planet Lothal. It coordinated air travel between the planet's scattered settlements[2] and guided visitors to spaceports[3] until it was supplanted by a more advanced Imperial network[2] by the year 5 BBY.[4] When LothalNet comm tower E-272, located in grid Q6 of the Western Zone, fell into disuse after the area was seized by the Empire, the thief Ezra Bridger took up residence in the tower.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit
