Friday, October 30, 2020

Commerce, Ga. — Kinetic by Windstream, a long-trusted community partner for entertainment and internet services, announced a network upgrade to meet the connection needs of Commerce. 

This morning at 10 a.m. the Kinetic by Windstream team held a ribbon cutting ceremony located at the Commerce retail store at 149 Pottery Factory Drive to celebrate the launch. State Representative Tommy Benton, State Senator Frank Ginn, City Manager James Wascher and Mayor pro tem Keith Burchett joined Kinetic President of Operations J Berkshire for the honors. 

Gig-speed service has been highly anticipated by residents of Commerce. “Fast, reliable fast internet is critical to stay connected to what’s important,” said J. Berkshire, President of Operations, Kinetic by Windstream in Georgia. “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 Commerce have what they need delivered to their door. The changes we’ve made give this community all the comforts of a major metro area, even when they’re here to get away from it all.” 

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. 

“Our community is currently seeing unprecedented growth and development,” said Hill. “Expansion of access to reliable high-speed internet will be more important than ever. I am thrilled to see Windstream’s planned investment in Commerce and the value they bring to our citizens.”
