Kinetic Wholesale Delivers Fiber Access to More than 350 Macro Towers in 2Q

July 19, 2021 GMT

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 19, 2021--

As wireless carriers substantially increase their demand for bandwidth, Kinetic Wholesale by Windstream is delivering fiber access to new macro towers proliferating across the company’s 18-state footprint. The company added fiber to 354 new macro tower sites in the second quarter of this year. With the ongoing densification of towers increasing, Kinetic is well-suited to continue to meet the demand for 10G capability for cell-site backhaul.

“We are diligently working with our wireless partners to meet their projected needs as they build more rural macro towers over the next few years,” said Marc Dyman, senior vice president of Kinetic Wholesale. “As wireless companies roll out new products to more customers, we are able to meet their growing bandwidth demands in a cost-effective manner through our own investment in fiber through our network.”
