Consolidated spreads fiber broadband to 6,500 in southwestern PA

Oct. 8, 2021
More subscribers in Pennsylvania can now connect to the operator's gigabit-speed, fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband services.

Consolidated Communications (NASDAQ: CNSL) announced that more than 6,500 homes and small businesses in Cranberry Township, Gibsonia, Mars, Sarver, Valencia and Wexford, Pennsylvania can now connect to the operator's gigabit speed, fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband services.

Consolidated’s investment in Pennsylvania is part of the company’s ongoing fiber expansion plan to upgrade more than 70% of its service footprint to symmetrical, multi-gig speeds by 2025. Fiber network builds are also underway in California, Illinois, Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Texas and Vermont.

“We’re offering some of the fastest, most affordable internet speeds in the country,” claims Erik Garr, president of consumer and small business services at Consolidated Communications. “The fiber network connectivity we’re delivering to residents and small businesses in southwestern Pennsylvania communities provides endless benefits and opportunities for individuals, students, families, entrepreneurs and small business owners across the area.”

The provider further contends its Consolidated Fiber Internet service offers highly competitive pricing and plans to meet a wide range of customer needs. Symmetrical 1-gig service is available for $70 per month, allowing consumers "to easily work and learn from home, video chat without freezing, and download or upload high-definition video with multiple connected devices simultaneously," as reckoned by Consolidated.

The service includes equipment and installation costs, and all residential plans feature a one-year price lock with no contract required. The company maintains its fiber customers consistently benefit from increased reliability and faster download and upload speeds.

Understanding its customers use their data to access critical services, Consolidated notes it "never imposes a data cap, throttles speeds or charges extra for heavy users. Local businesses will also benefit from increased speeds and reliability for online retail, point of sale and inventory as well as for a number of voice and cloud communication solutions offered by Consolidated. Consumers can also add streaming content available through one of Consolidated’s featured partners with the flexibility to watch their favorite programs on any device," adds the provider's statement.
