The ConnectME Authority is offering a grant to fund the expansion of a small Maine telecom's broadband network.

UniTel will match the $360,000 grant from ConnectME as part of its strategic plan to boost availability of its fiber network by bringing Fiber To The Home to its customers.

The company's CEO Laurie Osgood says UniTel will have one of the speediest fiber optic networks in Maine and the country once the work is completed in 2015.

UniTel, which was founded in 1902, offers phone and Internet service to the towns of Albion, Dixmont, Knox, Newburgh, Thorndike, Troy, Unity and fringe areas.
