    Default Windstream contract gone

    I have not seen this anywhere on here so I will add it. A certain large locating company lost the Windstream contract in Iowa.

    The Windstream contract, (including McLeod, Paetec, KDL & Norlight) for MI, IN, IL and OH was won by Turnkey Network Solutions out of Grand Rapids, MI. They are still looking for experienced locators in Ohio and Illinois. They only locate fiber and all of their fiber routes are drawn on one map showing risers, hand holes, man holes and surrounding addresses which can all be edited by locators in the field. They pay well and have excellent benefits and their website is www.tkns.net.
