MANCHESTER, N.H. – June 1, 2021 – Consolidated Communications (NASDAQ: CNSL), a top-10 fiber provider, is bringing symmetrical, gigabit, fiber internet services to residents and businesses in the Keene, N.H. area, starting in June.
Work is well underway on the new fiber-to-the-premises network that will deliver reliable, high-speed broadband to 9,000 residents this summer, and 16,000 residents by the end of 2021. The new network will meet the region’s critical need for faster internet service and will deliver download speeds nearly 10 times faster and upload speeds nearly 100 times faster than what is currently available.
“Keene will soon have some of the fastest internet speeds in the country,” said Erik Garr, president of consumer and small business services at Consolidated Communications. “We know the significant benefits of reliable, high-speed internet as an economic driver for a community and are thrilled to provide these crucial connections for residents and businesses in the Keene area.”
Fiber internet handles more devices and more data with consistently higher speeds, lower latency and superior reliability. Consolidated’s always on, dedicated connection enables customers to realize full bandwidth, no throttling even during peak hours, and no data caps. Customers can easily learn and work from home, send and receive files, video chat, stream television and movies, online game, and make use of smart home technology.
