Windstream Enterprise has unveiled new unlimited plans for its cellular broadband service. It provides primary or secondary network access connections to maximize uptime of mission-critical applications.
Unlimited Cellular Broadband is a fully managed service from Windstream Enterprise with 24/7 support and monitoring. The solution offers visibility and reporting via WE Connect. That’s a customer portal that delivers access to all information in one place, to help manage and optimize networks.
Mike Frane is vice president of product management at Windstream Enterprise.

“Network outages result in lost revenues, decreased employee productivity and customer dissatisfaction,” he said. “Unlimited Cellular Broadband offers a significantly more cost-effective option than the lost revenue of debilitating network outages.”
Cellular broadband serves as a primary connection method for customer locations that have limited access options available. It also acts as a secondary SD-WAN connection. It offers failover by providing redundancy to other network connections.
Here’s our most recent list of new products and services that agents, VARs, MSPs and other partners offer.
Customers with locations that have a high wireless data utilization rate can similarly benefit from this cellular broadband usage plan to avoid overage charges from going over in data, Windstream said.
Cellular broadband is an access option for SD-WAN customers that require resiliency, but can’t afford a second physical wired loop, or where a second wired access loop may be unavailable.
Mike Flannery is Windstream Enterprise’s chief marketing officer.
“Keeping your network up and running is critical for every business, and ensuring rapid connectivity to remote locations is essential,” he said. “Unlimited Cellular Broadband is a reliable and cost-effective strategy that will contribute to an effective business continuity plan.”
Unlimited Cellular Broadband is now available in three data plan options.
Last month, Windstream Enterprise unveiled a new VoIP service to eplace plain old telephone service (POTS) for critical safety voice applications. Digital Voice Lines (DVL) with Cellular Failover supports critical services such as fire alarms, security alarms and POS terminals.
