Albermarle, NC -- Windstream, provider of advanced network communications and technology solutions, announced on April 18 it has completed a major network expansion in Albemarle. Starting this week, more than 7,000 consumer and business customers are eligible to receive ultra-fast 1-gig Internet service. The network upgrade comes after an investment by Windstream of $1 million throughout downtown Albemarle and surrounding areas of the city.
"With the expansion of 1-gig services throughout Albemarle, we are investing in the gigabit economy surging across the east coast helping to transition local businesses into global ecommerce powerhouses. Investing in rural and suburban areas allows those communities to create new opportunities for citizens to live and work close to home versus commuting to the big city," said Stacy Hale, president of operations for Windstream in North Carolina. "Gig connections are going to change the landscape for Albemarle residents by delivering blazing fast speeds able to handle today's growing connected device ecosystem while meeting the need for more bandwidth."
