Additions to property, plant and equipment was $786.5 million against $841 million a year ago, with approximately two-thirds directed to growth initiatives, including fiber deployment and broadband expansion and enhancements. Adjusted capital expenditures were $787 million. The company expected improved revenue trends in 2015 in enterprise, consumer and small business and continuation of some revenue pressure in the carrier business. The company expects total service revenue for the year within a range of a 4% decline to flat as compared to 2014 service revenue. The company expects adjusted OIBDA margins, as a percentage of total revenue, to be in the range of 34% to 34.5% for the year. The decrease relative to 2014 is largely due to the loss of high-margin carrier, switched access and universal service fund revenues. Capital expenditures are expected to range from $825 million to $875 million, which excludes investments related to the second phase of the FCC's Connect America Fund. The company will provide an update on its plans once the FCC program is finalized. Due to various tax initiatives and the extension of bonus depreciation in 2014, the company expects cash taxes to total approximately $20 million in 2015.

Windstream Managed WiFi Solution Now Available to E-Rate Customers

Windstream is now offering its Managed WiFi solution to E-Rate eligible K-12 schools and public libraries. This new option for E-Rate participants comes on the heels of the E-Rate Modernization Order, recently issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC.) The order expands funding for broadband and WiFi solutions, in an effort to close the connectivity gap that many schools and libraries face presently. The FCC will be allocating $2 billion over the next two years, allowing E-Rate program participants to install and manage campus-wide WiFi networks. In order to meet the rapidly changing needs and budgets of K-12 schools, Windstream has packaged its Managed WiFi solution specifically for those taking advantage of E-Rate funding. Managed WiFi is an IP-based solution that enables authorized computers and devices to connect to the Internet and communicate with one another wirelessly within a defined geographic area.
