Granite State Communications (GSC) is excited to announce we will be the recipient of a $1.2 million grant from the state of New Hampshire’s Connecting New Hampshire – Emergency Broadband Expansion Program to extend our fiber broadband network to the most rural parts of our serving area.
GSC is a third-generation family business focused on delivering dependable, personal, cutting-edge services to our customers. Over the last 12 years we have constructed a state-of-the-art fiber optic network to the majority of our customers. Funding from this grant will allow us to reach our most rural and difficult to reach subscribers, improving their experience with distance learning, telehealth, and work from home situations. We have been serving these communities for over a century and the pandemic has emphasized how important high-speed internet is to households and businesses, so the timing of this grant is critical and allows us to get started on several important expansion projects right away.
The grant will allow GSC to commence fiber construction projects in Deering, Hillsborough Upper Village, Stoddard, and Washington. The timeline will be to complete construction by the end of 2020 and begin adding customers in late 2020 and early 2021.
