Kinetic by Windstream Launches GIG Speeds in Dawsonville

Thursday, October 8, 2020

Dawsonville, Ga. — Kinetic by Windstream, a long-trusted community partner for entertainment and internet services, announced a network upgrade to meet the connection needs of approximately 6,500 homes in Dawsonville. 

This afternoon at 1 p.m. the Kinetic by Windstream team held a ribbon cutting at the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame to celebrate the launch. State Senator Steve Gooch (Dist. 51) joined Kinetic President of Operations J Berkshire for the honors. 

Gig-speed service has been highly anticipated by residents of Dawsonville. “Fast, reliable fast internet is critical to stay connected to what’s important,” said Berkshire. “In a year with more families working remotely, attending school virtually and depending on video calls to keep connected with loved ones, we are pleased to make sure residents of Dawsonville have what they need delivered to their door.” 

Gig speed allows customers to stream favorite TV shows on Kinetic TV or YouTube TV instantly. Customers can use multiple devices at the same time without a lag in speed or losing connection. The upgrades mean Kinetic meets the demand for seamless voice, video, gaming and ultra-high definition TV service. 

Sen. Gooch added, “Access to internet service is paramount to a growing community for economic development and educational excellence.  As the State Senator of District 51, I have spent the past 4 years working to help expand rural broadband throughout Georgia.  I applaud J. Berkshire and the entire Windstream organization for their steady progress in upgrading their infrastructure.  The investment they are making is going to have a significant impact on our region for decades to come.”
