Just as the weather started heating up, so did news in the channel. Led by the Frontier-Ziply Fiber handoff in the Northwest and a list of top SD-WAN providers, our website had a lot of repeat visitors and newbies in May.

Of course, COVID-19 continued to dominate some headlines. For instance, an article about Ingram Micro’s efforts to help partners cracked our top 12.

Then there were the layoffs. Cloudera and FireEye each announced they’re cutting jobs. And a story about CenturyLink layoffs from way back in February had staying power.

But enough doom and gloom. Windstream’s CEO revealed when he expects the company to exit bankruptcy, a relief to many partners. Also, two new hires of note cracked our top 12, including a CEO for Fusion Connect and a Microsoft alum at RingCentral.

But the age old question asks, “Which was No. 1?” SD-WAN hot shots? Frontier-Ziply Fiber? Windstream bankruptcy? Scroll through our gallery below for the answer.
