LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Making good on the commitment to bring faster speeds to more people in under-connected communities, Kinetic by Windstream will soon be the nation’s largest provider of 8 Gig home internet. In the coming weeks, Kinetic will have 8 Gig speed available to more households than any other carrier.
In July, 330 exchanges across the Kinetic footprint will be eligible for 8 Gig service in their homes. That means more than 400,000 households will be able to access this future-proof bandwidth. The company will continue to expand its multi-Gig offerings into more markets in the future.
“We’re really proud to announce that no one else is reaching as many homes with this level of speed as we are,” said Clay Fisher, chief marketing officer for Kinetic. “We are committed to meeting our customers’ needs both today and in the future.”
Multi-Gig speed, delivered via a 100% fiber optic connection, provides 99% reliability and performance for households in the Kinetic footprint. Kinetic 8 Gig Speed Fiber has up to 8,000 Mbps upload speed, which is more than 220 times faster than cable internet upload speed.
“We know that homes have more connected devices than ever before,” said Fisher. “And that will just keep growing. Families will continue to need more bandwidth to keep these devices running smoothly. Kinetic is the company that is looking to the future to give our customers all the bandwidth they need.”
Expanding multi-Gig service comes as part of Kinetic’s multi-year $2 billion capital investment to deploy fiber across its 18-state footprint. Additionally, the company is creating unique partnerships with cities, counties and other groups to drive fiber deeper into the network faster.
