Windstream is confirming rumors that it canceled more than 200 agent contracts.
“We recently notified a small subset of partners that we were ending the relationship in accordance with the terms and conditions of their contracts,” said Jeff Howe, who leads the channel at Windstream.
About 230 agents were not meeting Windstream’s requirements, a spokesman told Channel Partners.
However, Howe said, Windstream remains committed to the channel.
“We…continue to aggressively pursue opportunities within the channel,” he said. “We also continue to align field and internal channel resources to capture the needs of the medium to large enterprise market place. Emerging technology trends, including managed services, virtualization, cloud and big data, are especially rewarding for agents right now.”
