Windstream expands Kinetic 1-Gigabit fiber Internet service to 100,000 businesses in 2019

LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Jan. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Windstream (Nasdaq: WIN), a leading provider of advanced network communications and technology solutions, announced today 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.

This expansion means approximately one thirdof commercial locations, primarily small and medium-sized businesses, across Windstream’s rural footprint will have access to Gig 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.

“Businesses should be assured that all of their data needs — from point-of-sale transactions to high-quality voice and virtual conference rooms to high-bandwidth applications — can be met by leveraging the same high-speed connections that businesses in urban centers enjoy,” said Jeff Small, president of Windstream’s consumer and small and medium-size business division.

The Kinetic Business suite of services includes high-speed Internet, cloud voice services, and network security solutions for businesses. To learn more about Kinetic Business by Windstream, visit smallbusiness.windstream.com.
