BRING ON THE BROADBAND: FAIRPOINT ANNOUNCES WESTFORD EXPANSION

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (July 6, 2010) – FairPoint Communications has announced the arrival of super-fast Internet service in Westford.

FairPoint’s VantagePoint network, a fiber-based core network, is now available to 80-plus homes and businesses along these Westford streets: Abbey, Birch Ridge, Hillside, Kings Hill, Ledge Martel, Milton, Mountain, North, Old Stage, Penny Pidgeon, Sunset, Valley View, Westford and Westford-Milton.

With speed options as fast as 15Mbps, downloading entire movies will take seconds. Broadband service on the VantagePoint network provides customers with the ability to smoothly stream live video, play online games at lightning speeds and upload photos and large files with ease. Always-on broadband access provides almost instant connections to information, news and entertainment.

More than $111 million has been invested by FairPoint in the communications infrastructure and technology to bring the VantagePoint network to northern New England, including laying more than 411 miles of new fiber across the region.

Michael K. Smith, FairPoint State President and Westford resident, said “VantagePoint is enabling us to expand broadband service into areas with no high-speed Internet access and provide faster broadband connections to existing service areas.”

Internet packages start at $39.95. For additional information about FairPoint High-Speed Internet prices and bundled plans, residential consumers can call 1.866.984.2001 or visit www.FairPoint.com.
