Windstream submits application for USD 523 million from FCC rural digital fund

Monday 1 February 2021 | 16:50 CET | News

Jeff Small, president of Windstream's Kinetic business unit, said the money would help the company to bring gigabit-speed broadband to rural communities too expensive to serve without a public-private partnership.
