Standing Up for Businesses in Dallas that Need Fiber Deployments, Not Empty Promises


When it comes to high-speed fiber deployments, Dallas has had its heart broken in the past. In fact, the city’s most recent “left at the altar” moment happened just last fall when a major provider announced it would hit the “pause” button on a planned fiber roll-out (we won't mention the provider by name, but feel free to Google it).

Well, there is finally some good news: Windstream is expanding our fiber and fixed wireless networks in Dallas. Windstream’s expansion will provide the area’s growing business community with world-class fiber and fixed-wireless infrastructure that connects even more local data centers and commercial buildings with Windstream’s high-speed, highly available nationwide fiber network.

That is great news for Dallas-area businesses, especially those in the Central Business District (including Downtown Dallas and the Uptown, City Place and Turtle Creek areas), as well as the city’s Design and Medical districts.

And additional Windstream expansions in the near future will expand access in the Park Cities, Preston Hollow, Galleria, Addison areas along with the 635 Corridor. It will also connect the Richardson Telecom Corridor, the Plano/Legacy Business Park area and Las Colinas/Irving Business Center.

This expansion is part of a multi-million-dollar initiative to grow our advanced metro fiber networks in cities across the country. And we’ve already announced similar expansions in Charlotte, Nashville, Richmond, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, St. Louis, Detroit and Philadelphia, and there are even more to follow.

Our expansion is important because it gives both established and growing companies in Dallas a competitive provider of world-class fiber and fixed-wireless infrastructure. But it is also important for another reason: it expands the Windstream services that are available to Dallas-area customers – including unified communications, managed services, network security, business continuity, network solutions and cloud services. All provided with the support of a truly local team.

So what do Dallas Windstream customers think? Patrick Benson, CIO at ClubCorp, said:

“At ClubCorp, we are thrilled with the benefits we’ve seen since partnering with Windstream for our enterprise-wide voice and data needs.
