PORTLAND, Maine, Jan. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Consolidated Communications (CNSL), a leading broadband and business communications provider, today announced it has joined forces with AT&T* to give customers more ways to order Consolidated Communications’ residential Internet service by offering it through AT&T’s call centers and more than 50 retail stores throughout Northern New England.

“We’re delighted to work with an industry leader like AT&T to bring best-in-breed offerings to our mutual customers,” said Rob Koester, vice president of product management, consumer services at Consolidated Communications. “As customer relationships continue to evolve, it is vital that we recognize the value of expanding our sales channel with strategic alliances.”
