Texarkana, Texas — Faster broadband is now available from Kinetic by Windstream. As part of ongoing investments in its 18-state network footprint, Kinetic has deployed fiber to bring blazing fast internet to the homes and businesses of Texarkana.
“Now more than ever, staying connected is critically important,” said Jeff Small, president of Kinetic. “Our customers need connections to allow them to live, work and go to school wherever they live.”
The deployment brings gigabit speeds to 14,000 homes and businesses in the area.
"These days we are even more aware of how much we need reliable internet access,” said State Senator Bryan Hughes (Mineola). “So we are especially thankful for this investment from Kinetic by Windstream in Texarkana's fiber network and what it will mean for education, jobs, and for all our families in East Texas."
State Representative Gary VanDeaver (New Boston) agreed, “If we have learned anything from 2020, it’s that the investment in fiber networks to bring broadband to Texarkana is an investment in keeping communities connected and thriving. Thank you to Kinetic for making sure our families have access to the technology needed to work remotely, go to school online and enjoy entertainment safely with their loved ones.”
The project is part of a multi-year investment program to deploy in fiber and fiber-like services to communities across the Kinetic network. In the first half of 2020, Kinetic enabled approximately 100,000 new locations with gigabit-capable services. That investment means when internet use soared more than 30 percent earlier this year, the network was well-equipped to handle it without slowing down.
Residential customers can take advantage of these speeds to work from home, to stream video or for gaming while safely navigating the internet with the benefit of our award-winning Kinetic Secure service. Business customers can take advantage of fiber fast speed offers together with Kinetic’s reliable voice and award-winning collaboration system, HD Meeting by OfficeSuite UC.
Customers can call 855.804.6925 to find out if they are eligible for a speed upgrade and how Kinetic can help meet their home or business needs.
