Windstream to expand Richmond network
Windstream announced Monday it will expand its fiber network in the Richmond area.
The expansion will connect more of the region’s commercial buildings and data centers to Windstream’s high-speed nationwide fiber network.
In the Richmond area, Windstream will expand its network in the Short Pump, Glen Allen, West Creek Parkway, Midlothian and Mechanicsville areas.
“This project expands both our footprint and the Windstream services that are available to local customers – including fixed wireless service, unified communications, managed services, network security, business continuity, network solutions and cloud services,” Brian Norton, regional president of Enterprise Sales for Windstream’s east region, said in a statement.
Windstream is expanding local metro fiber networks across the country in markets such as Charlotte, Atlanta, Chicago and Nashville. Windstream is investing a total of $50 million this year in enterprise on-net projects.
