Windstream Communications, LLC Key Developments

Windstream Communications Executes Agreement with Allied Fiber for Dark Fiber and Neutral Colocation

Allied Fiber announced that Windstream has executed an Indefeasible Right of Use (IRU) agreement and lease for dark fiber and neutral colocation to expand its network between Miami and Jacksonville. This agreement is a part of Windstream's continuing focus on the construction of its long haul optical network, called WINterstate. This long haul, 100G "express" network offers other carriers and large enterprise customers low latency, high bandwidth network solutions. Windstream will now connect to Allied Fiber's network-neutral dark fiber route from Miami, FL, to Jacksonville, FL, which consists of a custom 528-count Corning SMF-28e+ cable and integrated neutral colocation facilities approximately every 60-miles. With Allied Fiber's access flexibility, Windstream can now break out of the long haul route to service ILEC customers in Daytona Beach, FL, as well as Enterprise customers at key access points along this 360-mile segment of Allied Fiber's Southeast Route. Windstream will leverage Allied Fiber's dark fiber network and neutral colocation facilities in Florida to interconnect its own internal network elements as well as provide access in to its entire network in the state to meet customer demands for greater capacity and more efficient and cost-effective service offerings.
