Maine Senators Applaud UniTel’s New Fiber Speeds and Pricing

UNITY, ME, FEBRUARY 1, 2021 – UniTel announced today that new fiber customers can get gigabit internet over UniTel’s fast fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network, plus unlimited nationwide calling, for just $100/month, effective February 1. UniTel offers its fiber customers the fastest internet available in Maine and is always working on extending the availability of FTTH internet.

“We are pleased that UniTel is committed to expanding access to high-speed fiber Internet service to 2,500 households and businesses throughout Maine,” said Senators Susan Collins and Angus King in a joint statement. “The pandemic has brought renewed urgency to ensure all Mainers have reliable Internet access to stay connected for remote learning, telework, and accessing health care services. We will continue to advocate for policies that support investments in expanding high-speed broadband connectivity and access in rural parts of our country.”

UniTel’s latest fiber construction project will allow 100% of the Newburgh community to access UniTel’s highest-speed FTTH network. UniTel also offers fiber internet services in a number of other Maine communities including Albion, Burnham, Dixmont, Knox, Thorndike, Troy, Unity, and surrounding areas.

“Our fiber-based gigabit internet – that is, 1,000 Mbps – provides some of the fastest and most reliable internet available in the country, which Maine residents deserve,” said Laurie Osgood, CEO of UniTel. “In late 2020, we were thrilled to be able to substantially increase our fiber internet speeds with no price increase for all customers, and now we are happy to welcome new customers in our communities with a special promotional rate of $100 for a gig.”

Current UniTel fiber customers had their internet speed doubled for free several months ago, and as of February 1, will receive unlimited calling and call features as part of their bundles at no extra charge. In addition to gigabit internet, UniTel offers fiber-to-the-home speed tiers of 250 Mbps and 500 Mbps.

In keeping with UniTel’s past policies, new UniTel fiber customers will receive free installation and are not required to sign a contract. UniTel’s DSL customers who upgrade to fiber internet are eligible for the promotional Gig pricing. Additionally, for customers in Newburgh and Dixmont, UniTel will offer internet only pricing beginning February 1.
