NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - FairPoint Communications says 95 percent of its New Hampshire access lines now have access to broadband Internet service.

The company says it reached that point by the end of 2013, enabling it to meet the last requirement placed on it by New Hampshire utility regulators when it bought the landline telephone operation from Verizon in 2008.

FairPoint says high-speed Internet in now available in 215 more communities across the state, reaching more than 100,000 additional homes and businesses.

The Nashua Telegraph (http://bit.ly/1eCnXG1 ) reports that in the last five years, FairPoint has spent more than $72 million on its broadband expansion efforts in New Hampshire.

Most of the broadband connections are DSL, which has download speeds of up to 15 megabits per second.
