I'm visiting Nashua, NH this week - drove up from Georgia with my TM3 LR. I'm kind of surprised at how many Tesla's I see here, yet the closest supercharger is in Littleton MA. The Tyngsboro SC will be a great location for Nashuans when it comes online. Still, it's surprising at how few there are here in NH.
There's a bunch of charging spots in Nashua. See plugshare - you may need to turn on "restricted locations". I used the 277V HPWC at 100 Innovative Way one night in a pinch (22kW, [email protected]), but it has since been flagged "restricted". I guess they don't want non-tenants getting free electricity (makes sense).

Stopped by yesterday and there was no construction in this mini mall yet. There was a lot of work across the street at Pheasant Lane mall where 4 charging cabinets for Electrify America were being installed. Not sure of the logic of the placement given that there are EvGo chargers at that mall that have been there for several years.
Well, the old EVGo units are 50kW max, and EA is installing 150kW and 350kW units...

With the 3 DC charger systems, close together, and the advent of Tesla<->CCS1 adaptors in the next year, it will be interesting to see is any price/power competition develops.

There isn't going to be any price competition between Tesla and the others, why would there be. Tesla doesn't want CCS cars charging at Superchargers they are only opening up the network so that they can qualify for government subsidies. For a CCS car to use a Supercharger they will have to buy an adapter. The CHADeMO adapter costs $450, there is no reason to assume that Tesla will charge less than that for the CCS car to Tesla adapter, that alone will limit the number of people who try and use the Superchargers with CCS cars. As for rates, Tesla has said that they are going to charge CCS cars by the minute not by the KWh and they are going to charge a higher rate for slow charging cars. Even if Tesla provides a CCS plug or two it's not going to be attractive to CCS car owners unless they have no other choice. Selling electricity is a money losing business, Tesla built the Supercharger network to sell cars not as a profit center. The cost of building the Superchargers is baked into the price of the car. Because they don't make anything off of a non-Tesla they are going to price the electricity high enough so that it's profitable which will make the price substantially higher than it will be for EA which is trying to build a business based on selling electricity.

Nothing visible for supercharger at this site. Electrify America at the mall looks to be complete but not yet online.
