Windstream Wholesale Begins Work on Three New Transport Routes

Windstream (News - Alert) Wholesale, a leading provider of advanced optical solutions, today announced it has begun the initial work to add fiber to three routes on its rapidly expanding transport network: New York City to Albany to Montreal; Jacksonville, Florida, to Savannah, Georgia, to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, to Raleigh, North Carolina; and Tulsa to Muskogee, Oklahoma, to Little Rock, Arkansas. The company is a sponsor of International Telecoms Week, and representatives will be on hand to discuss the advantages of its rich set of diverse transport and dark fiber solutions.

The three routes announced today are part of Windstream Wholesale's ongoing initiative to expand its fiber infrastructure and provide a rich set of high-bandwidth WAN advantages including low-latency transport to major data and international hubs across the U.S., including in Miami, New York City, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Jose. The project will pull high-count fibers through existing conduits on some spans as well as construction of some new paths on other segments. Diverse routing options protect networks against outages, while delivering coast-to-coast transport, as well as connectivity to thousands of Windstream-lit buildings across the U.S.

International Telecoms Week (ITW) is Aug. 29-Sept. 1 at Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center National Harbor, Maryland, near Washington DC. Attendees wishing to meet with Windstream Wholesale at the event may contact their account executive or drop by Annapolis Meeting Rooms 1 and 2.

"This is the first time in two years that ITW has been an in-person event, and we are excited to meet face to face with our customers, partners and peers," said Joe Scattareggia, executive vice president of Windstream Wholesale. "We are rapidly expanding our transport network to meet customer demand, and we look forward to discussing how we can provide diverse, high-capacity connections to more key markets than ever before."

Windstream's recently announced offerings include:

  • Drk fiber and lit transport services from the Hillsboro, Oregon, ecosystem to Portland, Seattle, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, and points beyond. Diversity options include multiple routes from Hillsboro to Portland to include or avoid the Pittock Block data centers.
  • Access from the Jacksonville and Boca Raton international cable landing stations to all major U.S. data centers.
  • Wave services up to 400G, with the first commercial deployment turned up in 2020.




Windstream Wholesale continues to leverage its new Intelligent Converged Optical Network (ICON) with efficiency, speed, and diversity in mind, providing a high-bandwidth infrastructure that will enable the digital transformation and innovation needed for today's rapidly evolving businesses. Company representatives at ITW will be available to develop fast, flexible, custom solutions that can make a positive, bottom-line impact for customers.
