Windstream (NASDAQ:WIN) announced the completion of a broadband upgrade for north Georgians served by the company's cable TV network. About 71,000 consumers in north Georgia now have access to 300 Mbps Kinetic Internet service.

Windstream began delivering broadband over its cable TV network for the first time in 2017 with speeds up to 100 Mbps.

"With this upgrade, we are delivering on our promise to bring faster speeds to north Georgia customers served by our cable TV network," said J. Berkshire, president of Windstream operations in Georgia.

Windstream's cable TV network in north Georgia serves Dahlonega, Blairsville, Clarkesville, Cleveland, Commerce, Cornelia, Dawsonville, Helen, Hiawassee, Homer, Jefferson, Nicholson and Young Harris. Additionally, upgrades were made in Hayesville, NC.

"Windstream is committed to bringing best-in-class Internet and entertainment services to our customers in communities across all of Georgia," Berkshire said. "That's why we're using a variety of technologies - software enhancements, fiber expansion that includes fiber-to-the-premise and shorter loop lengths and, increasingly, fixed wireless - to meet customer demand for faster broadband speeds."
