Big Canoe, Ga. — Kinetic by Windstream, a long-trusted community partner for entertainment and internet services, announced a network upgrade to meet the connection needs of Big Canoe.
This morning at 10 a.m. the Kinetic by Windstream team held a ribbon cutting ceremony located on the putting green near the club house in Big Canoe to celebrate the launch. State Representative Rick Jasperse (Dist. 11) and State Senator Steve Gooch (Dist. 51) joined Kinetic President of Operations J Berkshire for the honors.
Gig-speed service has been highly anticipated by residents of Big Canoe. “Fast, reliable fast internet is critical to stay connected to what’s important,” said J. Berkshire. “In a year with more families working remotely, attending school virtually and depending on video calls to keep connected with loved ones, we are pleased to make sure residents of Big Canoe have what they need delivered to their door. The changes we’ve made give this community all the comforts of a major metro area, even when they’re here to get away from it all.”
Gig speed allows customers to stream favorite TV shows on Kinetic TV or YouTube TV instantly. Customers can use multiple devices at the same time without a lag in speed or losing connection. The upgrades mean Kinetic meets the demand for seamless voice, video, gaming and ultra-high definition TV service.
"Throughout Georgia, we know having effective internet access is critical to the growth and well-being of our communities,” said Rep. Jasperse. “I am glad Windstream is making the investment in Big Canoe and North Georgia and know it will make our region stronger as we work, learn and play in the COVID-19 environment.”
Sen. Gooch added, “Access to internet service is paramount to a growing community for economic development and educational excellence. As the State Senator of District 51, I have spent the past 4 years working to help expand rural broadband throughout Georgia. I applaud J. Berkshire and the entire Windstream organization for their steady progress in upgrading their infrastructure. The investment they are making is going to have a significant impact on our region for decades to come.”
