Windstream offers PC Protect for small businesses

New service provides businesses with protection from costs for computer hardware malfunctions

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Windstream (Nasdaq: WIN) is now offering small business customers protection against out-of-pocket expenses related to hardware malfunctions and operating system failures.

A broken hard drive, for example, could cost a business owner hundreds of dollars to repair or replace.

  • Helps eliminate major out-of-pocket expenses due to repair or replacement of essential PC hardware that breaks or is damaged.
  • PC Protect coverage applies to both laptop and desktop computers.

  • PC Protect is included in the Windstream Super Bundle, which provides small businesses with Internet, voice, unlimited long distance, plus Online Backup, Internet Security Suite, Broadband Protection Plus and TechHelp.

“When a PC goes down, a small business owner has to deal with a loss of productivity and the hassle and cost of repairs,” said Don Perkins, Windstream vice president of business marketing. “But with Windstream’s PC Protect service, business owners can guarantee they are protected and can rest-assured that their business can get up and running again quickly.”
