Chesterfield, NH Selects Consolidated Communications for FTTP Network for Residents and Businesses

  • Consolidated Communications

CHESTERFIELD, NH — The town of Chesterfield, New Hampshire has entered a public-private partnership with Consolidated Communications, a broadband and business communications provider, to build a high-speed, fiber-to-the-premises internet network directly to all homes and businesses with no associated property tax increase. Fiber-to-the-premises technology offers faster, highly reliable, broadband connectivity, which will be a significant boost to Internet speeds currently available in the rural town of Chesterfield.

New Hampshire towns were given the authority to issue bonds for broadband infrastructure when the state passed Senate Bill 170, sponsored by Sen. Jay Kahn and Rep. John Bordenet, last year. The arrangement is the first of its kind in the state. Consolidated Communications is working diligently to bring better broadband Internet services to other unserved and underserved rural communities across New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont using a combination of its own capital and third-party funding sources. Last year, the company completed a significant broadband upgrade project delivering faster speeds to 500,000 residents and small businesses throughout Northern New England including 140,000 upgrades across New Hampshire. Upgraded homes and businesses are now able to get speeds two to three times faster than what was previously available.  

Additionally, consumers now have access to the latest, on-demand streaming content including: HBO Now, DIRECTV Now, fuboTV and Philo. The company’s MyCCIAccount.com center enables existing customers to place new orders and upgrade services online.
