CHATHAM, NY — Consolidated Communications announced it has launched 1 gigabit broadband services within its New York service areas over a new fiber–to-the-premises (FTTP) technology, which will significantly increase broadband speeds and on-demand capabilities for residents and businesses.

“We are excited to offer residents and businesses in our rural New York service areas an incredible internet experience through our 1 Gig internet service,” said Rob Koester, vice president of consumer product management at Consolidated Communications. “Customers now can take advantage of the many benefits and opportunities broadband can give them.”

“We congratulate Consolidated Communications on its launch of fiber-to-the-home broadband service in partnership with the Broadband Program Office,” said Jeffrey Nordhaus, executive vice president of innovation and broadband, Empire State Development. “Broadband is a necessity for all communities in today’s economy and this launch will further assist thousands of businesses and residents throughout the state.”

Support from the New New York Broadband Program
Consolidated’s deployment of faster broadband services in New York is supported by a grant from the New NY Broadband Program, a public-private partnership designed to provide incentives to service providers to deploy last-mile broadband connectivity in underserved and unserved areas. Through grant support from the program and its own capital investment, Consolidated has extended fiber-based broadband service to more than 10,000 business and residential locations across its awarded projects, along with an additional 5,000 locations outside the Program. In total, more than 30 communities have received new broadband access.

Fiber internet services offer significantly faster, highly reliable, broadband connectivity that gives customers symmetrical speeds and the ability to connect multiple devices without sacrificing speed. Fiber supports gaming, streaming video content and uploading photos with virtually no buffering or waiting. It also allows people to work from home using a reliable connection that supports remote access and video conferencing, to create and upload high-bandwidth content and to take advantage of smart-home devices. The speed and bandwidth capabilities of high-speed, low-latency fiber internet services also benefit businesses that can take advantage of cloud access and gain numerous efficiencies and time.
