Windstream, provider of voice and data network communications, and managed services to businesses in the United States announced the launch of its ultra-fast 1-Gigabit Internet service in four markets. The 1-Gig Internet service will be available to approximately 35,000 residential and small business customers in Lincoln in Nebraska, Lexington in Kentucky, Sugar Land in Texas and seven North Carolina communities.
According to Windstream, with the Gigabit broadband service users can 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 markets, it added.
