One Third of Mainers Now Have Access to Gigabit-Speed Internet Accessible Homes, Thanks to Fidium

More than 41,000 residents and businesses in Lewiston, Portland and Scarborough can now order multi-gig speed fiber internet from Fidium

In less than two years, Maine has more than doubled the number of fiber internet-accessible homes. Fidium has built fiber to 190,000 homes, more than one third of Maine households. This marks a substantial accomplishment for the state that previously ranked 49th in gigabit-speed internet access.

“We’re excited to help more Maine communities enjoy the opportunities and tremendous benefits that come with better internet,” said Sarah Davis, vice president of government affairs for Consolidated Communications. “We’re investing in the future of Maine, and over the course of our expansion, we’ve doubled the number of homes with access to multi-gig speeds. Better still, we’re not done yet.”

In recent weeks, Fidium added 41,000 homes and businesses to the growing list of fiber-accessible homes, including: 27,000 homes and businesses in Lewiston by June’s end; 9,000 in the North Deering neighborhood of Portland, and more than 5,000 in Scarborough.

With new fiber infrastructure, more communities can take advantage of the employment, educational and entertainment advantages that come with all-fiber internet. With more fiber expansion on the way, residents and small business owners can stay informed on Fidium availability by adding their address at and completing a no-obligation pre-order.
