Internet provider is subject of state probe
Placeholder Image
The Governor’s Office of Consumer Protection has launched an investigation into Windstream for possible consumer violations by the Internet provider. The investigation is in response to consumer complaints that Windstream is advertising broadband capabilities the company may not be able to deliver at certain usage times. That announcement was followed by a hardware failure at Windstream’s central office in Dahlonega, reportedly to blame for last week’s widespread Internet outage in Dawson County.
