SEBEC — FairPoint Communications announced the completion of a broadband upgrade project in Sebec. As a result of this project, faster broadband speeds are available to approximately 200 locations in the community – some addresses for the first time.

“Internet access has transformed the way we live, and that is even more evident in rural states like Maine,” said Mike Reed, FairPoint’s Maine state president. “For businesses, internet access means faster connections to customers and suppliers that can make the world their marketplace, while families gain access to entertainment, shopping and educational resources that were once truly a world away. The men and women of FairPoint take pride in increasing broadband speeds and extending access across our state, and we are pleased to make this broadband investment here in Sebec.”

More residents and businesses can quickly email photos, download music, stream video and surf the internet now that FairPoint has upgraded broadband services. Those on portions of the following streets now qualify for faster broadband speeds: Backerd, Bowerbank, Burgess and Cove roads, Knoll and Lakeside drives, Moulton Hill, Nee and Old Brownville roads, Pine Knoll, Sebec Village and Sunset drives and Thompson, Trask and White roads.
