Consolidated Communications will deliver 1-Gig fiber services to residents of eight New Hampshire towns as part of the company’s commitment to expanding its fiber footprint through public-private partnerships.
The eight towns include Marlborough, Charlestown, Fitzwilliam, Gilsum, Goshen, Langdon, Troy and Unity. These towns join a growing list of New England communities that are partnering with Consolidated to deliver better broadband to their town.
When complete, Consolidated will have connected more than 9,400 homes and businesses with 1-Gig symmetrical speeds.
“We are committed to expanding and improving rural broadband throughout our service area. Fiber internet is a major driver for lasting economic development, e-commerce and quality-of-life benefits and opportunities,” said Rob Koester, senior vice president, consumer product management at Consolidated Communications in a statement.
Public-private partnerships are part of Consolidate’s strategy to expand its fiber footprint.
The company announced early this month that it plans to increase its fiber coverage to 300,000 more locations in 2021. The company also has said it will deliver fiber to 2 million homes by year-end 2025, which will 70% of its footprint.
