Moving over from Zayo, Cunningham will take responsibility for leading the company's enterprise, wholesale and indirect sales and customer success operations throughout this key region. He joins the firm as it pivots to focus on emerging technologies and the impact of the 4th Industrial Revolution on business and connectivity. As such, Lumen said Cunningham would "focus on enabling the potential of customers, by utilising the Lumen technology platform that allows enterprises to leverage their data and adopt the next-generation business applications vital to their growth and digital business success". https://www.capacitymedia.com/articles/3828280/lumen-names-vp-of-sales-and-customer-success-for-emea

Last year, CenturyLink installed fiber-optic internet within 1/2 mile of my cabin, which is in the middle of nowhere outside Placerville, Idaho. I am now able to work from my cabin, which I did for most of 2020. Over the course of the year, I hired 9 local craftsmen as I enhanced the cabin. That is the impact of one remote worker living in your community. Having reliable broadband in rural Idaho will be a tremendous benefit to our economy and bringing resources (grocery stores, gas stations, medical clinics, schools, etc.) to parts of Idaho that have been declining in population for 50+ years. https://www.idahostatejournal.com/freeaccess/much-needed-broadband-infrastructure/article_0555ffbd-34b7-54d5-bfd2-5c659c4ee3f9.html
