Consolidated Communications Builds Fiber-to-the-Premise Network and Launches TV Service in Ghent, New York

Company launches residential and small business triple-play, broadband services

GHENT, N.Y., April 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Consolidated Communications, Inc. (CNSL) today announced the completion of a Fiber-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network and the launch of TV service in Ghent, New York, located in Columbia County, southeastern New York. 

“Our 1 Gig fiber network is primed and ready to deliver an incredible TV experience to our customers – one that has the potential to not only transform the quality of their lives, but enhance its enjoyment through expanded programming delivered on superior broadband technology than what’s available in the region today,” said Rob Koester, vice president of consumer product management at Consolidated Communications.”

With a variety of available triple-play packages, customers will have access to the most popular national and local channels along with regional sports networks. Customers will also be able to watch and record their favorite TV shows in crystal-clear HD on a Whole-home DVR (WDVR), which is included in all TV packages. A WDVR gives viewers a common storage device inside their homes that can record and play back programming from anyplace in the residence. Residents and businesses can order Consolidated Communications’ TV service online or call 1.844.YOUR.CCI (844.968.7224).

Fiber Internet services offer significantly faster, highly reliable, broadband connectivity that gives customers symmetrical speeds and the ability to connect multiple devices without sacrificing speed. Fiber also supports gaming and uploading photos with virtually no buffering or waiting. It also allows people to work from home using a reliable connection that supports remote access and video conferencing, to create and upload high-bandwidth content and to take advantage of smart-home devices.

Consolidated recently launched 1 GigaBit Internet speeds in its New York service areas. Upgraded homes and businesses are now able to get speeds two to three times faster than what was previously available.
