I just had a renter at my Bar Harbor, Maine house tell me that the internet kept going down and that rebooting the router didn't help. They ended up borrowing a hotspot from the library. Now I am probably going to get a poor rating on Airbnb because of your service or lack thereof.

Troubleshoot yourself

Here is a list of some common problems you may face while using the internet, TV, and phone services from Consolidated Communications. We’ve provided some simple solutions as well that could help you fix it yourself.

  • Web pages not displaying correctly – this could be due to a lag in the browser. More often than not, a simple restoring of defaults in the advanced browser settings solves the issue.
  • Internet down or speed issues – turning off the modem and router for about 10 seconds and then turning it on can usually fix this.
  • Black, blue or green screen on your TV – reset the set-top box to reboot your TV system. This can take up to 10 minutes.
  • Static on the phone line or no dial tone – unplug all the cords that go into your phone line one at a time. Listen for a dial tone before unplugging each equipment to identify the one does not have a dial tone.

If these basic troubleshooting steps do not resolve the problem, your last resort is to contact customer care or visit one of the Consolidated Communications stores.
