Consolidated launches new Fidium Fiber brand in New Hampshire
‘Future of Consolidated’s consumer fiber internet service,’ says CEO
Consolidated Communications has officially rolled out its new Fidium Fiber gigabit broadband service in New Hampshire and elsewhere in New England.
For much of the last year, the company has been installing the fiber-optic cable to carry the service in some 80 New Hampshire communities as well as parts of Maine and Vermont.
Consolidated has been rolling out the service throughout its network, which is in 23 states. Eventually, it expects to offer the service to some 70% of its nearly 2 million customers by 2025, including 400,000 in New Hampshire.
Fidium Fiber offers symmetrical 50 Mbps, 250 Mbps and 1-gig service tiers. The 1-gig service costs $70 per month, the company said, with Wi-Fi equipment and installation costs included and no contract or bundles required. It also includes up to two wireless extenders to ensure whole-home coverage and an app that the company says gives users more control over their in-home broadband experience.
Fidium is offered through straightforward plans and pricing, with symmetrical 1 Gig fiber internet for $70 per month, including installation and equipment with no contract. Lower-tier fiber plans are available starting at $35 per month.
All told, Consolidated says the service provides speeds 20 times faster than the national average.
Bob Udell, CEO of Consolidated, called Fidium “the future of Consolidated’s consumer fiber internet service, answering the need for better home broadband and giving consumers more choices, control and personalization.”
