Tuesday Bytes: RCN, CoreSite, Windstream, BroadSoft, CS&L

June 21st, 2016 by · 1 Comment

Here are a couple of quick-takes from around the USA for this Tuesday morning.

RCN Business provided high speed internet connectivity to the toughest of bandwidth crowds last week. They supplied the North American Network Operators Group with the necessary bandwidth to keep the industry's professionals on-net during their conference in Chicago, as well as onsite support and proactive network monitoring.

CoreSite has a new cloud customer to report this morning. Paperspace has just completed a deployment of its technology in both CoreSite's New York and Santa Clara Campuses. Paperspace offers cloud-based personal computers to its enterprise customer, and deploying on both coasts lets it take the concept national. The selection was facilitated by PaperSpace's IT services provider COLOpeople.

Windstream will be raising its hospitality game with some help from the communications software specialist BroadSoft across its territory. The two are teaming up for a customized virtual PBX and UCS system for the hospitality industry. They hope to provide hotel owners with a simple migration path from legacy technologies all the way to cloud UC. Now if only they can provide them with a path to make hotel WiFi work the way it ought to as well.

And Windstream is also about to sell the rest of its stake in CS&L and further reduce its debt.  CS&L announced the pricing of a secondary public offering by Citigroup with a price of $26.01.  They just sold the other half a week ago.  So much for the theory that this was just a bookkeeping move.

  • Too soon? says:

    What does the final scorecard reflect on the overall transaction for WIN? Would an outright sale have been better for shareholders? What do they actually own/control of their network?
    Thanks.
