All Residences in Newburgh Now Have Access to High-Speed Fiber Internet
April 13, 2021 – UniTel is pleased to announce that it has completed its high-speed fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) internet installation in Newburgh, ME. The completion means that all 632 homes that UniTel passes are now fiber ready.
“We are so pleased that the residents of Newburgh now have access to fiber-based gigabit internet technology, some of the fastest and most reliable internet available in the country,” said Laurie Osgood, Owner and CEO of UniTel. “We originally brought fiber to Newburgh in 2015 and kept investing in the area until it was 100% FTTH. UniTel’s goal is to keep extending and expanding our network until all of the communities that we serve have access to 100% fiber internet.”
By building a gigabit-certified fiber network, UniTel has far surpassed conventional benchmarks for broadband speed, especially given the challenges of building fiber internet networks in rural areas. UniTel has invested over $10 million in the past 10 years to expand its digital fiber network and connect thousands of rural Maine residents with the best connectivity. UniTel has been recognized by national association NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association as both a Smart Rural Community and a Gig-Certified Provider, for bringing technological innovation to its communities.
UniTel currently offers new fiber customers its fast fiber gigabit internet, plus unlimited nationwide calling, for just $100/month. Additionally, existing UniTel fiber customers recently had their internet speed doubled and have access to unlimited calling and call features as part of their bundles at no extra charge. Fiber customers in Newburgh also have the option of ordering an internet plus phone bundle or stand-alone internet.
