MATTHEWS – Kinetic Business Fiber Internet services, with speeds up to one gigabit per second, are available to 1,900 commercial locations in Matthews with the opportunity to expand further, Windstream announced April 23.
This is part of the first wave of one-gig internet expansion nationally impacting nearly 100,000 businesses in 16 states.
Windstream’s efforts help broaden the company’s penetration of fiber nationally from 2 percent of businesses in the coverage area to one-third of commercial locations. The rollout will be completed this year.
“Expanding the fiber network in our Matthews business community will continue to drive transformation around telecommunications, and commercial operations and business transactions,” said Stacy Hale, president of Windstream operations in North Carolina. “The scale and reliability of Internet-platform systems from VoIP to cloud services — it’s next-level IT.”
