Windstream announced last week that it plans to upgrade its broadband internet service in Northeast Georgia counties, including Dawson, Lumpkin, White, Habersham and Jackson. The plans come after months of criticism lobbed at the Arkansas-based company regarding poor performance and download speeds. Customer complaints about Windstream's slow internet service in homes and businesses throughout Georgia's 9th District, which encompasses all of Northeast Georgia, prompted a public rebuke from U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, R-Gainesville.
