Consolidated Communications has made Fidium@Work, an offering that includes multi-gigabit symmetrical broadband and Wi-Fi 6, available to new business customers in the company’s fiber markets.
The service is available with no contracts or data caps. It includes VoIP business phone lines, the choice of a dynamic or static IP address and what the company calls enterprise grade security that is managed through the Attune@Work WiFi app. The service is available on more than 180 Fidium systems in California, Illinois, Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Texas and Vermont.
“We’re excited to bring Fidium Fiber’s gig-speed internet service to the entrepreneurs and small businesses who are the backbone of our communities,” Rob Koester, Consolidated’s senior vice president of product management, said in a press release.
“We’re transforming the way people think about their business internet service, delivering the reliability of an all fiber network, the consistent pricing business owners need, and an easy, hassle-free experience. You don’t need a full IT department to get the benefit of a comprehensive business internet and WiFi service Fidium@Work offers.”
Consolidated made several Fidium announcements last year. Some highlights:
In December, Fidium became available to 4,800 addresses in Conway, NH, with 4,200 more able to preorder the service in North Conway.
Three months earlier – in late September – Fidium said that its service was available to 41,000 homes in the Maine communities of Augusta, Biddeford, Falmouth, Rockland and Waterville. Construction also was underway to 6,000 homes in Lisbon Falls, with service said to be available a few weeks after the larger announcement.
In August, Fidium said it had made 2 Gbps service available to 12,000 homes in Bennington County, VT. The network covers 14 towns and was the result of a deal announced in May between Consolidated and the Southern Vermont Communication Union District (CUD). Four hundred of the homes did not previously have access to high speed Internet.
