Consolidated Communications now can deliver symmetrical 2 Gbps service across its Fidium Fiber footprint. The company also now includes WiFi 6 in all its broadband packages.
Fidium Fiber, which is available in parts of California, Illinois, Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Texas and Vermont, offers 50 Mbps to 2 Gbps services without contracts or data caps.
The 1 Gbps service is priced at $70 per month and 2 Gbps at $165 per month. WiFi 6 is the base for a mesh platform, which is designed to increase reliability and eliminate dead spots. Attune WiFi, a whole-home management app that provides network visibility, content settings, time-of-day access control, speed tests and other features, also is included. Subscribers also can get two line extenders with their subscription.
“These enhancements to Fidium’s already fantastic service illustrate our dedication to building the ultimate internet experience for our customers,” Erik Garr, the president of consumer and small business for Consolidated Communications, said in a press release about the Consolidated 2 Gbps news. “Fidium is about constant innovation and improvement. We think our customers deserve the best, and I’m excited for folks to see just how powerful WiFi 6 and 2 Gig symmetrical fiber internet can be.”
Consolidated has made several announcements this year:
- In April, it said that 34,000 homes in Bangor, Portland, Rockland and South Portland, Maine can preorder Fidium Fiber. Consolidated said that by the end of the year more than 150,000 households will have access to Fidium Fiber.
- In the latter of two New Hampshire announcements, Consolidated said in late March that 5,600 homes in Charlestown, Greenfield, Langdon and Marlow, N.H. had access to the service. An additional 850 homes were to get service in April.
- The earlier announcement was in January. The company said that more than 55,000 homes in Manchester, Milford and Nashua, N.H. could order Fidium Fiber.
