FAIRPOINT EXPANDS BROADBAND SERVICE TO MORE THAN 2,100 HOMES AND BUSINESSES IN NORTHERN NEW HAMPSHIRE

Lisbon, Twin Mountain and Woodsville have access to high-speed Internet

MANCHESTER, N.H. (December 13, 2010) – FairPoint Communications has expanded broadband to more than 2,100 homes and businesses in the Lisbon, Twin Mountain and Woodsville area. Some customers in the adjacent towns of Bath, Bethlehem, Carroll, Dalton, Landaff, Lyman, and Sugar Hill may also have access to high-speed Internet service.

FairPoint’s VantagePoint(SM) network, a fiber core, IP-based network, provides speed options as fast as 15Mbps. Broadband service on the VantagePoint network means customers can smoothly stream live video, play online games and upload photos and large files with ease. Always-on broadband access provides almost instant connections to information, news and entertainment.

“VantagePoint is enabling us to expand broadband service into areas with no high-speed Internet access and provide enhanced services across the state,” said Teresa Rosenberger, FairPoint state president for New Hampshire.

Since April 2008, FairPoint has invested $129 million in the communications infrastructure and technology to bring broadband to northern New England, including building more than 700 miles of new fiber across the region.

FairPoint expects to provide access to high-speed Internet service to 85 percent of its New Hampshire customers by the end of 2010.

Internet packages start at $35.99. For additional information about FairPoint’s high-speed Internet prices and bundled plans, residential consumers can call 1.866.984.2001 or visit www.FairPoint.com.
