CONROE, Texas--As part of the company’s five-year plan to expand its fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) network, Consolidated Communications is actively upgrading broadband services in its Conroe, Katy and Lufkin service areas. This large-scale investment will connect more customers and small businesses and enable multi-gigabit speeds.

When the five-year project is completed, more than 80 percent of the company’s Texas locations will be fiber capable allowing customers to easily work and learn remotely, create and upload high-bandwidth content, connect multiple smart-home devices without latency and more. For 2021, planned fiber builds to 35,000 of the total new locations are well underway with Gigabit services already available in some areas.

Consumers can also sign up for video content available through one of Consolidated’s streaming partners with the flexibility to watch their favorite programs on any device. In addition, the company understands the importance of ensuring its customers can use the data they need to access critical services and never imposes data caps, throttle speeds or charges extra for heavy data users.

“We are connecting more people and working to deliver an even better Internet experience to our Texas customers,” said Gabe Waggoner, executive vice president of operations at Consolidated. “Our network investments will be a boon to the local economy and allow us to offer future-proof broadband technology to individuals, families and small businesses.”

Last December, Consolidated announced plans to upgrade more than 70 percent of its service footprint to symmetrical, multi-Gig speeds over the next five years. Network builds are also underway in California, Illinois, Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire and Vermont.
