Background on Windstream for Illinois consumers

In 2006, the telecommunications industry saw a new provider emerge from a long-running series of mergers and acquisitions: Windstream. Illinois consumers may recognize the name of one if its predecessors, Alltel, which itself resulted from a 1983 merger of Allied Telephone Company and Mid-Continent Telephone company. Allied Telephone had done business in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri since 1943.

Alltel ranked among the country's five largest local telephone companies. With its deep roots in the industry, Windstream continues to offer residential phone service through millions of access lines in more than a dozen states.

Soon after its formation in 2006, the company began diversifying its range of services. In 2009, Windstream achieved a milestone with its 1 millionth high-speed Internet customer.
