OTELCO Expanding Its Lightwave Fiber Internet Zone into Gorham

OTELCO, a telecommunications provider serving areas of Maine, Alabama, Massachusetts, Missouri, Vermont, and West Virginia, is bringing improved broadband connectivity with its Lightwave Fiber Internet to Gorham. This major fiber broadband initiative includes the construction of 37 miles of Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTP) network in portions of Gorham, resulting in the availability of symmetrical Gigabit Internet to approximately 2,500 locations. The anticipated completion date for the construction is fall of 2021 at which time OTELCO will begin scheduling installations. Interested residents can visit www.otelco.com/builds to learn more and sign up for priority installation.

“The OTELCO family of companies have a long-standing tradition of delivering state of the art communication technologies to our subscribers in the states we serve; today that technology is futureproof fiber, and we couldn’t be more excited about bringing the technology to Gorham,” commented OTELCO CEO, Richard Clark. Clark also encouraged folks to visit www.otelco.com/builds to learn more and check availability for their location. Should community interest indicate, OTELCO could consider expanding the build at a future date.

OTELCO has an interactive map to help Gorham residents see if their location is part of the build. Visit www.otelco.com/builds to learn more and register to be among the first to get connected when the network is complete. All Gorham residents are encouraged to register even if they are not part of the initial project area. Coverage may be expanded if there is an overwhelming response.
