Windstream has announced it is expanding the availability of its Kinetic fiber internet services, with speeds up to 1 gigabit, to approximately 100,000 commercial locations across 16 states in 2019.
The project, which is expected to be mostly completed in the first quarter, lays the groundwork for future expansions to meet growing business needs. Approximately one-third of commercial locations, primarily small and medium-sized businesses, across Windstream’s rural footprint will have access to gigabit services, up from the current 1 percent.
For small and medium-sized businesses, bringing fiber internet connections to their doorsteps will enable more robust solutions from Kinetic Business, such as cloud voice services, next-generation networking and affordable business continuity plans. It also will power bandwidth-intensive applications such as video conferencing, file sharing and HD content consumption.
The Kinetic Business suite of services includes high-speed internet, cloud voice services, and network security solutions for businesses.
