Windstream Wholesale has signed its largest network capacity agreement to date with a major hyperscale customer.

This deal, combined with additional wave capacity contracted in October, represents 5.7 terabits of capacity. This represents the most sold in any single month at Windstream Wholesale and the customer will use the capacity to interconnect data centres in key US cities.

“Our flexibility and customer tailored routes coupled with our unique domestic network density in Tiers 1, 2 and 3 cities have positioned us as the ‘go-to’ provider for international carriers, content providers, fibre operators and others needing domestic diversity and redundancy,” said Joe Scattareggia (pictured), executive vice president for wholesale sales at Windstream (WSTI).

“Our wholesale business has been on a steady growth trajectory for some time. Hitting our single highest month of capacity sold is a great accomplishment and reflects the inflection point of marketplace bandwidth demand and our network solutions designed to meet this demand.”

Windstream Wholesale’s coast-to-coast long-haul and regional express fibre-optic network, spanning approximately 150,000 miles, provides high-speed optical wavelengths to support today’s massive data demands stemming from cloud computing, multimedia and bandwidth intensive applications.

Its optical wavelengths service features unique, diverse routes with high-speed connections from Tier 2 and Tier 3 markets back to the most popular carrier hotels, data centres, cable landing stations and 1,200+ 1G to 100G capable PoPs in Tier 1 markets in the US.

Capacity contacted Windstream Wholesale to find out the identity of the customer and we're awaiting their response.

The news comes after Windstream Wholesale partnered with Telxius and NJFX to create the first dual cable landing station (CLS) terrestrial connection.
