Kinetic by Windstream to Expand Gigabit Broadband Availability in Pennsylvania

05/13/2021 | 09:31am EDT

Kinetic by Windstream, a long-trusted community partner for high-speed internet, will significantly expand the number of customer locations in its Pennsylvania service area that qualify for fiber-backed, symmetrical one-gigabit broadband service in 2021.

More than 83,000 customer locations in the company’s Pennsylvania footprint currently qualify for lightning-fast, one-gigabit broadband, up from zero in 2016. Kinetic will build one-gig, fiber-to-the-premise connections to approximately 56,000 additional locations by the end of 2021.

“This aggressive expansion of gigabit speeds underscores Kinetic’s commitment to the rural communities we serve in Pennsylvania,” said Susan Schraibman, president of Kinetic operations in the commonwealth. “Since 2018, we have invested almost $152 million in these communities because we understand how important high-speed broadband is to our customers’ ability to work, learn and consume entertainment.”

Jeanne Shearer, Kinetic vice president of state government affairs in Pennsylvania, noted that it is often cost-prohibitive to build broadband networks in thinly populated rural areas.

“Public-private partnerships enable Kinetic to more rapidly deploy the faster internet speeds our customers need, and that’s why we’re actively looking for communities as well as electric cooperatives that want to join us in this vital effort,” Shearer said.

Kinetic by Windstream recently announced its first public-private partnership in Pennsylvania with Greene County to expand broadband service.
