ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) -- After filing for bankruptcy, News10NBC is getting a look at how Windstream did in 2018.
Windstream added 6,000 new subscribers in the fourth quarter with14,000 new broadband customers for the year, which is a significant improvement from a loss of 45,000 customers in 2017.
"Overall, we had a strong, transformational year in 2018. We continue to benefit from investments in our network infrastructure that enable us to deliver faster internet speeds to more customers. We have delivered 12 consecutive months of broadband subscriber growth through February of this year, and we expect that growth to continue throughout the year," said Tony Thomas, president and chief executive officer of Windstream.
