High-speed Internet service on VantagePoint network connects more Vermonters
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (April 19, 2011) – FairPoint Communications has expanded broadband to hundreds of homes and businesses in Enosburg Falls.
FairPoint will be bringing total broadband coverage to half of its exchanges this year, including Enosburg Falls, as part of the company’s new high-capacity network called VantagePoint(SM).
“VantagePoint is enabling us to expand broadband service into areas with no high-speed Internet access and provide enhanced services across the state,” said Michael K. Smith, FairPoint state president for Vermont. “Broadband availability opens the doors to the world for the residents and businesses in Vermont and is fundamental to the state’s future economic growth.”
FairPoint’s VantagePoint network, a fiber, IP-based network, provides residential 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.
FairPoint’s high-speed Internet service will reach Enosburg Falls customers along all or portions of the following streets: Bakersfield, Bogue, Boston Post, Brave, Butternut Hollow, Carpenter, Chimney, Coits Gore, Courser, Daigle, Deming, Enosburg Mountain, Horseshoe, Joyal, Longley Bridge, Nichols, Old Boston Post, Page, River, Sand Hill, Shadow, Tyler Branch and Witchcat.
Since April 2008, FairPoint has invested more than $50 million in the communications infrastructure and technology to bring broadband to Vermont, including building almost 1,000 miles of new fiber across the state.
Internet packages start at $35.99 per month. 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.
