LINCOLN – GWI announced today that it has completed construction of network facilities in Lincoln and Danforth, Maine and is now offering its line of residential broadband and phone services, as well as its business broadband, phone, and cloud computing services in those communities.
GWI’s expansion into Lincoln and Danforth is part of a larger effort by the Biddeford-based communications company to expand its broadband coverage in Maine in 2012, and follows the company’s announcement last week that it had begun offering services in Calais and Dover-Foxcroft. Construction is currently underway in five additional communities in addition to the recently announced mixed-use Gigabit Main Street fiber network the company is building in Orono and Old Town.
GWI CEO Fletcher Kittredge said of the concurrent projects, “As a Maine-based company, GWI is committed to expanding broadband coverage and economic opportunity to all of Maine’s rural communities and small towns, even as we work to develop the ultra-high-speed gigabit fiber networks to attract jobs and industries of the future to our state. Our investment in expanding service to residents and businesses in Lincoln and Danforth is part of that effort.”
