The Internet cable, phone providers, the options from cable line to wireless for the World Wide Web when relocating, retiring, moving to Northern Maine.
That would be a handy, helpful blog post for one stop shopping right? To save time if someone rounded up the information, the contact numbers and addresses for Internet cable, phone, broadband connections huh?
I thought so too as asked for this Internet broadband connection information often.
This very question posed a lot at our Maine real estate office. And the neat feature of a Maine blog post is hunt and peck, throw in a neat photo, some helpful links and ta da. Voila. Something useful jettisoned out onto the information highway. Uploaded to the clouds for others to glean and save time, money, frustration.
Because more and more you and I “google” for anything we want, need more details on right?
We have a lot of Maine real estate customers who bring their online job with them and “telecommute” to work in Maine. Self employed or bringing their old employment with them in the Maine move. Don’t need a job, already have one of those they are trained and ready to pack up in the move to Maine.
So for your standard land line phone or Internet service in Aroostook County.
Fairpoint.com is your contact (bought out by Consolidated Communications). Their residential service center office is opened 8am to 6pm Monday through Friday. Punch or tap tap and probably not dial 1.866.984.2001 for a representative of Consolidated Communications.
Polaris Cable was another option for a high speed Internet connection. Also digital phone service, channel packages for your viewing pleasure too. Bundling is the new communications hokey pokey that all the providers are doing right? Hey. But Time Warner Cable took them over and re-laced the town with lines. Ring them up for a voice channel connection at 207.532.2579. Time Warner is located at 34 Military Street,Houlton, ME 04730. Someone is there Monday – Friday from 8:00am – 5:00pm.
Pioneer Broadband Wireless is another option to not lose your broadband, high speed connection with the rest of the planet in your move to Northern Maine.
Technical support hours: Monday – Friday, 7:30am – 6:00pm. Reach out and phone them at 207.532.1254 or 1.866.335.1254. Email Pioneer Broadband.
The area code for the entire state of Maine is easy, a lonely 207.
Just one is all we need for a Maine area code, 207.
There are other Internet providers that can have their black box at the Fairpoint Main office and offer lots of options to razzle dazzle.
GWI is one of those headquartered out of 8 Pomerleau Street Biddeford, ME 04005.
Call toll free 866-494-2020 or contact them, email GWI to get wired, connected. Like most things, Internet broadband connectivity in Maine is a moving target and always improving. That last
mile of fiber or copper or the better tower for wireless is constantly being worked on in rural Maine. Where folks depend on Internet for work employment, distance learning education, for tele-medicine, to tap into online entertainment recreation.
I have cell service from Verizon, have had US Cellular and both provide good coverage.
Have friends who rave about T Mobile that have lots of kids on the plan. Study beyond the introductory offer, get the whole story with full disclosure for the long haul. So your head does not spin and you know you have the best plan for you today. That you know won’t be the last one you sign up for on the dotted line for the free phone upgrade.
So compare and be prepared nothing stays the same in the ever changing telecommunications field.
Some helpful information for anyone relocating, retiring, moving to Northern Maine and questions it raises that need answers. Hope this blog post helped in that regard. It’s is why we hammer them out one by one to save a hassle getting online information when not so many entries exist. Rural states like Maine are like that.
Maine, big state, lots of space, friendly down to Earth people with plenty of common sense live here. Hope this blog posts on Internet Broadband service providers, on cell phone and cable operators helps save you time and money.
