Windstream Communications is not taking the rising market competition lightly and has since expanded its ultra-fast 1 Gigabit Internet service to four market areas.
The new strategy will see Windstream increase its foothold in the American Internet industry despite being an already established service provider. With the new internet product, it is expected to partly solve the problem of unreliability that users have been enduring for some time now.
It is believed that continued inactivity of other providers has prompted Windstream to move in and reception has been positive for the few days. Starting April 4, 1-Gig Internet service became available to approximately 35,000 residential and small business customers in Lincoln, Neb.; Lexington, Ky.; Sugar Land, Texas and seven North Carolina communities namely China Grove, Concord, Davidson, Harrisburg, Kannapolis, Lewisville and Matthews.
In a press statement, the company said with 1-Gig Internet service, customers can benefit from ultra-fast speeds. It is now possible for users to download 100 songs in three seconds or an HD movie in just seven seconds, which is significantly faster than services currently available in each market area. Over the last three years, Windstream has made significant investments in infrastructure and network upgrades across all four market areas.
These investments have brought customers expanded premium speeds of 50-100 Mbps Internet service, Windstream’s next-generation television service Kinetic in select cities, and now 1-Gig Internet service. Tony Thomas, the president and chief executive officer at Windstream said they are keen to keep their momentum high amid heightened competition.
“We’re continuing to build on the momentum we started last year with the launch of premium speeds, Kinetic TV and Project Excel to further improve our network and expand our service offering. Launching 1-Gig Internet service is a testament to our ongoing commitment to make investments in innovative technologies that address our customers’ current and future needs.”
