Hear from customers who’ve had success

We have seen how many of our customers benefit LAN Services to fuel their connectivity, collaboration and security.

For one, as an independent, private marketer of fueling stations and convenience stores, Rotten Robbie tapped into these solutions to help connect wireless access points and other IP devices on their local area network (LAN) to provide greater visibility and control across their entire network—all from a single, easy-to-use portal (WE Connect). David Watson, IT Manager, Rotten Robbie said, “WE Connect provides the visibility and control to help me best manage my services from Windstream Enterprise.”

Another example can be found from Mid-Atlantic Dental Partners (MADP), a business that supports dental service offices across 14 states and 2,700+ employees. Secure WiFi helped to partition private network traffic from patient usage, which helped make sure that patient network traffic wouldn’t consume network bandwidth.  “We selected Windstream Enterprise because of their ability to provide a fully managed solution. They have been highly attentive, flexible and responsive to meeting our needs,” said Todd Rogers, CTO, MADP.
