Windstream Honored with 2012 U.S. Frost & Sullivan Award for Competitive Strategy Leadership

Windstream has revealed that it has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert) with the 2012 U.S. Frost & Sullivan Award for Competitive Strategy Leadership. According to Windstream, the company has received this honor for its impressive growth in the Ethernet services market.

Windstream (News - Alert) Ethernet Internet keeps users working, not waiting. Ethernet Internet offers companies with speeds up to 1Gbps and the same speed for uploads and downloads to move huge amounts of data rapidly – all while receiving the same dependability and performance of a conventional T1.

Additionally, Windstream Ethernet Internet is a dedicated connection that makes sure Internet traffic jams are bypassed, which is unlike cable Internet’s shared access lines. Cable Internet is a risk because a business is always competing for bandwidth with other cable customers. This is more so in case of businesses that depend on Internet during peak usage hours.

Windstream has also stated that its acquisition of PAETEC (News - Alert) in 2011 offered a considerable competitive edge to the company.

“Windstream has closely monitored the market and competitive scenario, and introduced an impressive set of Ethernet service offerings to penetrate the U.S. markets much more effectively than in the past," said Frost & Sullivan's Roopa Honnachari, program manager, Business Communication Services. "Following a combination of organic and inorganic growth strategies the company has emerged as one of the leading providers in the retail Ethernet services market.”

Recently, with the construction of a new data center in Nashville, Tenn., the company announced plans to expand its nationwide network of data centers. The new enterprise-class data center, which is scheduled to open in 2013, is being built to handle the increased demand for data center and managed services from Windstream's customers across the U.S. The new facility will be 21,000 square feet with 10,000 square feet of raised floor data center space.
