Compare Windstream to DIRECTV

Although the current name originated in 2006, the company's roots go back more than 70 years. Allied Telephone Company, based in Little Rock, Arkansas, opened for business in 1943. Allied Telephone would eventually expand to provide rural telephone service in neighboring Oklahoma and Missouri, as well.
In 1983, Allied Telephone merged with Ohio's Mid-Continent Telephone Company to form Alltel. A series of mergers and acquisitions over the next 30 years led to the creation of Windstream Communications. By the mid-2000s, the company had begun to expand into broadband Internet, TV and data services.
The company, still headquartered in Little Rock, joined the Fortune 500 in 2013.
