Fidium Coming to 10,000 Homes with No Contracts, No Data Caps and User-Friendly Account Control Features

MANKATO, Minn. — April 21, 2022 — With speeds 10 times faster[1] than the national average, FidiumSM Fiber, a new gigabit broadband internet service from Consolidated Communications (NASDAQ: CNSL), is primed to give residents of Mankato, North Mankato and Eagle Lake a speedier, more user-friendly internet experience.

Residents can sign up now to be first to be notified when Fidium lights up in more than 10,000 homes across Greater Mankato this year.

“Fidium is the future of Consolidated’s consumer fiber internet service and we’re proud to offer it at a competitive price point to Greater Mankato,” said Kari Juni, vice president of customer service for Consolidated Communications. “Fidium’s reimagined customer experience includes more choice, control and personalization, but most importantly, Fidium delivers the super-fast speeds that customers want and need. Fidium marks an important new service that will transform the way people live, work and learn from home.”

“High-speed, reliable internet is a major economic driver for communities,” said Mark Dehen, mayor of North Mankato. “I’m very pleased North Mankato residents and businesses will have the option for gigabit, fiber internet service, and I’m grateful Consolidated continues investing in the broadband infrastructure in our community.”

“The last few years have taught us just how important the internet is to our community,” says Mankato Mayor Najwa Massad. “I’m excited that a fiber, high-speed internet service option will soon be available to our communities. This important technology can help reduce barriers, increase accessibility, benefit education, further build community connections and contribute to the economy.”

Fidium was created to give customers exactly what they want (like straightforward plans and pricing with superfast speeds) and nothing they don’t (like shared bandwidth, data caps, contracts, required bundles, and hidden fees).

Symmetrical gig-speed fiber internet is available for $70 per month, including installation and whole-home WiFi. Fidium customers will get the best experience with the Attune WiFi whole-home management app, which provides speed tests and a host of options to help families stay safe online. Attune lets you see what devices are connected to your network; limit content for age-appropriate usage; and set controls on network use based on time of day. High-speed fiber plans start at just $35 per month.

Every Fidium Fiber internet plan offers:

  • Simple, affordable pricing ($70 per month for Gig service) that includes WiFi equipment and installation, with no required bundles, no data caps and no contract;
  • An intelligent whole-home mesh WiFi experience that starts with a top-rated WiFi 6 gateway and up to two extenders;
