DSL providers like Consolidated Communications (Formerly Fairpoint Communications) deliver broadband service over telephone wires, which explains why DSL is sold through companies that bundle Internet access with landline phone plans. DSL network technology is available to 97.12 percent of the area. The twisted copper wires carrying DSL Internet don't have as much bandwidth as fiber/cable infrastructure. The result: reduced speed and dependability. This is partly why average speeds within Greenbush perform under Maine, coming in at 36.94 Mbps, as opposed to the 56.96 Mbps average data rate in Maine overall.

Since FCC data is only collected twice annually and only published 6+ months later, providers listed in the results may not include the most recent upgrades or regional changes.
