We use Windstream for our hosted MPLS at 20 different offices. The service is mostly good when it's up, but their sales and support are the worst. We spend over 100k a month with them.

My company has windstream too. We've had our share of fiascos with them. The biggest problem is they lack communication, lazy and disorganized reps., and miss deadlines given to them alll the time.

We had Windstream at my previous job and switched service after huge issues with connectivity and service. The AT&T tech who came out to service the copper lines got a really puzzled look on his face and asked me "Did you guys really have internet on these lines?". When I said yes and asked why he stated he'd never seen copper lines with so much noise that actually still connected. We had opened 6 tickets with Windstream over the course of 8 months and not a single tech had come out and all the diagnostics came back "fine"... NOT. EVEN. ONCE!
