“Although a new name on the Little Rock business scene, local roots run deep for Windstream Communications. We are the largest voice, broadband and entertainment services company focused on rural America.
Windstream was created from a spinoff of Alltel Corporation’s landline services and merger with VALOR Telecom. Our history dates to the former Allied Telephone Company, formed in 1943, with offices in the capital city.
In Little Rock and Central Arkansas, Windstream is a competitive local exchange carrier, and we are proud to provide local and long-distance digital voice and data services to hospitals, schools, government agencies and leading businesses in the community.
We selected Little Rock for Windstream’s corporate home in April 2006, and it was a natural choice, what with 700 highly skilled and experienced employees and their families already in place and the right atmosphere in which to conduct business. And, we’ve always had a great relationship with the Little Rock business and economic community.
From here, our corporate teams support more than 8,000 fellow employees in 16 states to provide the latest in communication services - voice, broadband and digital TV - to about 3.3 million customer access lines.
The bottom line to the Windstream mission is to help the communities we serve ‘grow’ places. That’s our commitment to our home base. We are proud to call Little Rock home and to contribute to its growth and prosperity.”
