Kinetic by Windstream, a US service provider, is set to become the nation's largest provider of 8 Gig home internet, fulfilling its commitment to bringing faster speeds to under-connected communities. In the coming weeks, Kinetic will offer 8 Gbps speeds to more households than any other carrier in the country.
Kinetic to Offer 8 Gbps Speeds
According to the statement, 330 exchanges across the Kinetic footprint will be eligible for the high-speed 8 Gbps broadband service in July, providing access to over 400,000 households. Kinetic says it has plans to further expand its multi-Gig offerings to additional markets in the future.
Kinetic said, "We're excited to announce that no other provider is reaching as many homes with this level of speed as we are. We remain committed to meeting the needs of our customers today and in the future."
Expansion Plans for Multi-Gig Offerings
Delivered through a 100 percent fibre optic connection, the Multi-Gig speed offered by Kinetic ensures 99 percent reliability and performance for households within its coverage area. According to the statement, the Kinetic 8 Gbps Speed Fiber delivers impressive upload speeds of up to 8,000 Mbps, surpassing cable internet upload speeds by more than 220 times.
"Families will require more bandwidth to ensure smooth operation of their devices. Kinetic said it is committed to providing its customers with the bandwidth they need both now and in the future."
Multi-Billion Dollar Investment in Fiber Deployment
The expansion of multi-Gig service is part of Kinetic's multi-year USD 2 billion capital investment aimed at deploying fibre across its footprint covering 18 states. Additionally, the company is forging unique partnerships with cities, counties, and other organizations to accelerate fibre infrastructure deployment.
