Consolidated Communications (NASDAQ: CNSL), a top-10 fiber provider, is delivering symmetrical, gigabit, fiber internet services to 23,000 more residents and businesses in the Sacramento area in June. This is in addition to the 22,000 upgrades the company completed in April.

The company is upgrading and expanding its California fiber-to-the-premises network in Antelope, Carmichael, Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Lincoln, Roseville and Sacramento. In celebration of these upgrades, Consolidated is hosting surprise giveaways throughout June at a variety of local businesses, including Papa Murphy’s Pizza, Nothing Bundt Cakes and more. To find out where and when these giveaways are occurring, follow Consolidated on Facebook.

“The Sacramento area has seen enormous growth in the last year, and access to reliable, high-speed internet is crucial for residents and local businesses,” said Erik Garr, president of consumer and small business services at Consolidated Communications. “Delivering fiber internet’s superior speed and reliability to more residents and small businesses is exciting for us, and we’re inviting the local community to celebrate with us through our surprise giveaways.”

Fiber internet handles more devices and more data with consistently higher speeds, lower latency and superior reliability. Consolidated’s always on, dedicated connection enables customers to realize full bandwidth, no throttling even during peak hours, and no data caps. Customers can easily learn and work from home, send and receive files, video chat, stream television and movies, online game, and make use of smart home technology.

A variety of plans offer highly competitive options for a range of needs, with 1-gig symmetrical service available for just $70 per month, including equipment and installation costs. All residential plans include a one-year price lock, with no contract required. Residents can check eligibility for fiber internet service online. If service up to 1 Gig is not yet available at their location, residents can pre-register for service at consolidated.com/FiberLife.
