LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Construction is officially underway on a new regional headquarters for Windstream.

The company hosted a ceremony to celebrate the Internet Service Provider’s new operations in Kentucky. It will house 160 employees and have a warehouse for materials when complete at the end of 2022.

Since 2019, Windstream has invested more than $200 million in broadband access across the Commonwealth.

“We’re partnered with local, state, county, federal officials to find a way to get broadband, fiber broadband, to every community in the Commonwealth. We want to leave no town behind in the Commonwealth because if you’re not connected to the modern economy, you won’t be able to thrive,” said Windstream President and CEO Tony Thomas.

More than 120,000 homes and businesses have access to gig speeds because of Windstream.
