Fairpoint 50 Mbps?

I saw this press release crowing that Fairpoint now offers speeds up to 50 Mbps to some users -- can anyone verify?

FairPoint Communications, Inc. (NasdaqCM: FRP), a leading communications provider of high-speed Internet access, local and long-distance phone, television and other broadband services, now offers greater speeds – up to 50 Mbps in Kinderhook, N.Y.; Orwell, Ohio; Columbus Grove, Ohio; Bentleyville, Pa. and Kearney, Mo. – and significantly increased speeds in many other markets in its 18-state territory.

These improved speeds are a result of FairPoint's significant upgrades to its network; in all, rural communities in 14 states served by FairPoint's Telecom Group, now get boosted speeds.

It doesn't seem like they're referencing their already-existing FAST (FiOS) footprint, as it never existed in NY. Are they referencing business class customers? Can any Fairpoint user actually get 50 Mbps?
