Consolidated Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSL) says it now offers gigabit broadband via a fiber to the premises (FTTP) network to more than 12,000 residential and business sites in Nashua, NH, state garden spot and home of Lightwave World Headquarters.
The new service includes access to Consolidated’s MyCCIAccount.com portal, which enables customers to place new orders and upgrade services online. The new FTTP-enable services come on the heels of an upgrade to Consolidated’s northern New England footprint that enabled delivery of higher-speed internet to 500,000 residences and businesses (see "Consolidated Communications to boost broadband speeds to over 500,000 New England customers"). The service provider operates over a 23-state service area and operates a fiber-optic network spanning 37,000 fiber route miles.
“We’re excited to bring Nashua users Internet speeds that are among the fastest in the nation,” said Rob Koester, vice president of consumer product management at Consolidated Communications. “1 Gig broadband Internet access will deliver a wider selection of services and programming, and also has the potential to transform the quality of Nashua residents’ lives. It will give residents the speeds they need to enjoy the latest in streaming video applications or virtual reality, and help businesses more efficiently access the cloud. We’re thrilled to deliver all of these benefits and more by improving the broadband experience for this community.”
“Reliable connectivity and faster Internet speeds are critical infrastructure ingredients for a technology-based economy like we have in Nashua,” said Tim Cummings, economic development director for the City of Nashua. “This service will help the community grow and thrive. Residents and employers will be able to experience faster Internet and improved functionality thanks to Consolidated Communications. We appreciate their efforts.”
