FairPoint Communications expands broadband services in Johnson
Aug 19, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
FairPoint Communications, Inc., a provider of communications services, has expanded broadband to more than 100 homes and businesses in Johnson.
"Our next-generation network allows us to expand broadband service into areas with no high-speed Internet access and provide enhanced services across the state," said Beth Fastiggi, FairPoint state president for Vermont. "Broadband availability opens the doors to the world for the residents and businesses in Vermont and is fundamental to the state's future economic growth."
FairPoint reportedly provides residential speed options up to 15Mbps. Broadband service on the next-generation network means customers can smoothly stream live video, play online games and upload photos and large files with ease. Reliable broadband access provides almost instant connections to information, news and entertainment.
FairPoint's broadband Internet service will reach customers along all or portions of the following streets: Grow Road, Kali Lane, Maple Hill Road, Melody Lane, River Road, River Road E, Route 15 E, Waterman Road, Tomlinson Lane, Upper French Hill Road and Whiteface Mountain Drive.
FairPoint has invested nearly $100 million in its network in the Green Mountain State and has added 1,100 miles of new fiber, providing high-speed access to 90 percent of its Vermont service areas, the company said.
