Windstream’s Metro Push Comes Home to Little Rock

March 23rd, 2017 by · Leave a Comment

Windstream’s metro expansion plans have come back home.  The communications provider has revealed an expansion of its footprint in Little Rock, Arkansas, which also happens to house its own headquarters.  

Windstream already has a very deep footprint in Little Rock of course, as you can see from the screen grab from their interactive map to the left.  The expansion will add depth in the Downtown, Midtown, West Little Rock, North Little Rock, Northshore Business Park, Airport/Port Authority and Conway areas.  They are also offering fixed wireless services across the area as well.

The expansion will bring fiber closer to a wider variety of enterprises as well as reach out to additional data centers throughout the city and its suburbs.  Among the sites whose connectivity will be enhanced directly is Clinton National Airport, south of the Arkansas River and just east of the Downtown area.

Windstream has been investing capital in its metro reach across a wide swath of its territory, but more often than not at the edges in markets where it has little reach as an incumbent provider.   This one is deep in the heart of things though.

The company is of course busy these days with the EarthLink integration and its ongoing organic expansion plans out west.
