FairPoint Completes Network Improvements in More Than 75 Communities Across Northern New England

 Some Maine Locations Now Offer Internet Speeds up to 50Mbps download and 20 Mbps upload

 FairPoint Communications[1] has installed new equipment in more than 75 towns across Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont bringing greater Internet speeds to customers served by these upgraded facilities. The upgrade means that FairPoint customers can more quickly email photos, download music, stream videos, and surf the Internet.

 “High-Speed Internet access opens doors to the world for residents and businesses alike and is fundamental to the region’s future economic growth,” said Mike Reed, FairPoint’s Maine state president. “This is another example of FairPoint’s continued investment in our network which has expanded the availability of high-speed Internet to an additional 10,300 locations in more than 60 communities in Maine.”

 The upgrade project brings a range of high-speed Internet options to these communities, and depending on the customer’s distance from the upgraded equipment, some customers can qualify for up to a 50 Mbps download speed and up to a 20 Mbps upload speed.[2] Building a robust and versatile network across the region is crucial to handling the increasing demands for bandwidth, Reed said. 

 In Androscoggin, Franklin and Oxford Counties customers are now eligible for higher speed Internet in the towns of Brownfield, Chesterville, Denmark, Greene, Leeds, Otisfield, Poland, Stoneham and Wales.

 Since April 2008, FairPoint has invested more than $700 million in its communications infrastructure and technology to reach new customers, upgrade its network and expand Internet access in northern New England. FairPoint’s network – with nearly 17,000 miles of fiber in northern New England – is the largest in the region.

 FairPoint increased speeds in portions of the following northern New England towns: [*Denotes the town with the new equipment that has enabled portions of it to have speeds up to 50Mbps/20Mbps.]
