Windstream to offer 1-Gig internet speeds in some parts of North Georgia


Windstream today announced it is expanding its 1-Gig Internet service to provide some residents and small businesses in North Georgia with ultra-fast Internet speed.

1-Gig Internet service will be available to eligible customers across 15 North Georgia communities including Blairsville, Byron, Clarkesville, Cleveland, Colbert, Dahlonega, Dawsonville, Haddock, Jasper, Jeffersonville, Lakeland, Milledgeville, Noble, Pendergrass and Springfield.

“We’re extremely proud to share that Georgia represents one of the first five states in the Windstream footprint to have access to our ultra-fast 1-Gig Internet service,” said Jarrod “J” Berkshire, president of operations for Windstream in Georgia. “Many of the investments and infrastructure upgrades we set in motion years ago are in the final stages of completion, which is now allowing us to roll out faster and more reliable Internet speeds across North Georgia. While 1-Gig represents a significant milestone, we’re excited to say that there is more progress to come in 2017.”

Windstream’s 1-Gig Internet service is currently available inLincoln, Nebraska, Lexington, Kentucky, Sugar Land, Texas and seven North Carolina communities, according to a company press release.

With 1-Gig, North Georgia residents and small businesses in these communities will be able to experience ultra-fast speeds and gain access to music, TV shows and HD movies in seconds.

Last month, Windstream completed its first stage of a largescale cable system network enhancement in North Georgia to provide more than 67,000 residents with access to cable modem Internet speeds of up to 100 megabits-per-second (Mbps).

Windstream plans to continue its deployment of faster speed technologies in additional North Georgia communities throughout 2017.
