  • Windstream

LITTLE ROCK, AR — Windstream, a provider of advanced network communications and technology solutions, announced that it met its 2019 Connect America Fund II broadband deployment milestones. The company expects to complete all of its CAF II deployments by the FCC’s Dec. 31, 2020, deadline.

“Windstream is committed to bringing faster broadband speeds to our customers across rural America,” said Jeff Small, president of Windstream’s consumer and small and midsize business segment. “The FCC’s Connect America Fund has played a vital role in the ongoing effort to deliver broadband service to rural areas where deployment would otherwise be cost prohibitive. Windstream continues to invest our own capital to expand broadband availability where it’s prudent to do so, and we look forward to participating in the FCC’s upcoming Rural Digital Opportunity Fund to reach even more of our customers.”

Windstream deployed broadband to at least 80 percent of the CAF II locations in each of the 17 states where it accepted funding from the FCC by the Dec. 31, 2019, milestone. The company will complete deployment to 100 percent of its CAF II locations by the program’s Dec. 31, 2020, deadline.

Windstream committed to deliver broadband to over 404,000 homes and businesses when it accepted CAF II support in 2015.
