Windstream Offers 100 Mbps to 1 Million Consumers

Windstream now offers consumers and small businesses in 600 markets across 12 states faster Internet speeds of up to 100 Mbps.
Altogether, nearly one million households and small businesses now have access to premium speeds up to 100 Mbps in Windstream communities.

Those moves are in large part enabled by the sale of Windstream’s data center business.

In the third quarter of 2015, Windstream earned nearly 62 percent of total revenue from business customers, however.

Total revenue was $1.5 billion in the third quarter, up $80 million sequentially due to organic growth of $7 million and incremental “Connect America Fund” (universal service) revenue of $73 million.  

Consumer service revenue was up on a sequential basis with continued growth in high-speed Internet bundled revenue, Windstream said.

ILEC small business revenues were $107 million in the third quarter; carrier service revenues were $169 million; enterprise service revenues were $501 million and out of region small business service revenues were $146 million.
