Windstream offers faster Internet speeds

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Windstream Corporation (NYSE: WIN) has doubled the Internet speeds available across most of its 16-state network, offering 12-Mbps service in certain areas and expanding the availability of 3 and 6-Mbps service. The company now offers 3-Mbps service to virtually all of its broadband addressable lines as a result of the network upgrade. 

“Windstream experienced a four-fold increase in Internet usage in 2007 as our broadband customer base grew 28 percent year-over-year,” said Ric Crane, executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “This network upgrade allows us to offer faster speeds at greater distances, enabling customers to accomplish more in less time through a dedicated Internet connection at a great value.”

Windstream high-speed Internet service is available at any speed – including 12 Mbps, 6 Mbps, 3 Mbps and 1.5 Mbps – for $19.99 per month for the first six months with qualifying services in participating areas.

For added customer mobility and convenience, Windstream also offers a wireless home networking option that allows multiple computers, printers and devices in a home to share Internet access for no additional monthly charge and a one-time installation fee.
