FairPoint upgrades broadband service in 13 NH towns

Expansion enables speeds of up to 25 Mbps and first-time access to the fiber optic network for some

Pat McHugh, New Hampshire state president for FairPoint.

FairPoint Communications has completed the broadband expansion projects in 13 New Hampshire towns, providing them with faster speeds and in some cases first-time access to its 18,000-mile fiber optic network, the largest fully-owned and managed fiber-based network in northern New England. 

As a result, improved broadband speeds are available to more than 14,000 locations across the state. In Manchester and Pelham, more than 5,100 locations have been impacted, with some locations receiving broadband service for the first time.

“Broadband access enhances the way we live, learn, and work providing New Hampshire residents the opportunity to engage and transact far beyond the borders of the Granite state,” said Pat McHugh, New Hampshire state president for FairPoint, in a press release. “Families rely on broadband access and businesses need it to compete, so our team knows how important it is to complete these projects.”

To help support expansion and operation of broadband services in high-cost areas, in 2015 FairPoint accepted Phase II of the Federal Communication Commission’s Connect America Fund.

These locations will now qualify for download speeds of up to 25 Mbps2, based on the distance from the customer location to FairPoint’s servicing equipment, enabling customers to stream high-definition video, browse the web or participate in online gaming.

Since April 2008, FairPoint has invested more than $900 million in its communications infrastructure and technology to bring broadband to northern New England, including building thousands of miles of new fiber optic network across the region. FairPoint’s fiber-based, high capacity network offers customers a better, faster way to communicate.
