From Las Vegas, the route to Phoenix opens connections to such southern U.S. cities as Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, and Miami, says the service provider.

The company expects the new fiber cable route will appeal to large enterprise organizations, ISPs, hyperscale cloud operators, streaming content providers, international carriers, and others needing fiber connectivity. Windstream Wholesale will offer optical wavelengths, MEF 2.0 Certified Carrier Ethernet, MPLS Dedicated Internet Access, and related services over the fiber network.

“Our customers rely on Windstream Wholesale to provide them with unique and diverse network solutions, building redundancy to support a high-level of uptime,” says Joe Scattareggia, executive vice president of Wholesale at Windstream Enterprise and Wholesale. “This new route between Phoenix and Las Vegas is part of our continued network growth strategy. By expanding our efficient, diverse, high-bandwidth service capabilities, we are able to provide our customers more solutions that boost their competitive edge.”

The new route is part of a wide-ranging fiber footprint expansion program (see, for example, “Windstream Wholesale to expand fiber network with route from Los Angeles to Dallas” and “Windstream adds five routes to its nationwide 100-Gbps fiber-optic network”).
