Providing Federal Government Network Connections


If you’ve ever placed a phone call or sent an email inquiry to a federal government agency, such as the Internal Revenue Service, Consumer Product Safety Commission or even the Department of State, it’s quite possible that Windstream’s network carried your call or delivered that email.

As the fastest growing division of Windstream, the federal government sales and programming team works hard to provide advanced communications technology and data, voice, network and cloud services to all of its federal government agency customers. 

Windstream understands that high levels of customer service are critical when serving government clients. Government agencies require a certain level of care, from the initial sales and installation processes, to billing and maintenance activities throughout the life of the contract. As customer service is a top priority for Windstream—with company-wide emphasis for all of our business customers— we’re uniquely positioned to provide smart solutions, personalized service to government agencies.

Because of our broad network, comprehensive set of services, and strong working history with government entities, Windstream has acted as the preferred telecommunications provider for more than 150 government agencies using our awarded Federal and GSA contracts and schedules.

Our government agency customers find that Windstream customized data, voice, network and cloud solutions help them:

  • Adapt to ongoing technology changes and the evolving needs of their organization
  • Boost their agencies’ efficiency and performance
  • Protect their networks, systems and data from human misconduct, technical failures and natural disasters
  • Meet budget pressures by lowering the cost of acquiring and maintaining high-quality communications

During a time when taxpayer dollars are stretched thin in order to meet stringent federal government budget requirements, Windstream provides value to government agencies, reducing costs without sacrificing performance. Our fault-tolerant network of more than 115,000 miles of fiber and 26 data center locations nationwide—including Washington D.C.—utilizes a self-healing, IP-over-SONET backbone. It’s monitored 24 x 7 by state-of-the-art Enterprise Repair and Network Operations Centers and continues to be the only fiber network in the country with the capacity to handle the bandwidth needs of government entities.

From advanced data and voice products to expert network support, our team works to connect federal government agencies, departments and offices to the personalized service and smart solutions they need to effectively carry out critical missions.
