Kinetic by Windstream Ends 2020 with 60,000 More Broadband Customers and Expanded Gigabit Network
Kinetic by Windstream (News - Alert), a long-trusted community partner for communications services, added a net total of 60,000 new broadband customers in 2020, meeting its goal for expanding the customer base. Kinetic also extended its gigabit services and now reaches 589,000 locations across its footprint.
"As we begin 2021 and a nearly $2 billion initiative to continue growing our fiber footprint and gigabit internet service, we want to pause first to say 'thank you' to the customers who trusted us in such a crucial time to bring them the service they need to stay connected," said Jeff Small, president of Kinetic by Windstream. "Last year presented unique challenges for both our employees and our customers. We are proud of the way our team members rose to meet those opportunities to provide critical service when people needed it most."
While the job of Kinetic has always been to deliver communications services, the mission of connecting families and businesses while supporting communities took on added relevance in 2020. Kinetic launched a partnership with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and donated $100,000 to support for finding a cure for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Additionally, Kinetic led initiatives across the 18-state footprint to meet community needs:
There's no slowing down in 2021. As we drive fiber deeper into the Kinetic network, we are bringing forward more bandwidth-rich and affordable E-Rate services for eligible K-12 schools and libraries.
Customers can also look for new features coming in 2021 to the MyWIN app and customer portal which allow Kinetic users to manage their accounts and pay their bills online. New offerings will make life simpler and more organized for Kinetic customers.
