Allstream has been part of the Zayo Group since 2016.
Allstream announced last Wednesday that it is adding their voice and collaboration products to the Zayo portfolio, adding to customers' connectivity solutions, spanning fiber connectivity, managed services and cloud-based voice solutions.
Allstream products such as UCaaS (Max UC), SIP, Voice and collaboration and more, will merge into Zayo to enrich single-site and multi-site access, data, network, cloud, security, voice and collaboration and managed edge solutions.
"This next chapter in our combined story is the best way for us to meet the evolving needs of customers, like you, by providing you a wider array of services and more depth."
Zayo will become the contact for sales and account support for the services previously purchased from Allstream. You’ll recognize the people handling your account as many of them transferred from Allstream October 1. Technical support for these services will be provided by the Allstream Business Unit which will become a part of Zayo.
In 2023 you will begin to see some further changes, including branding on invoices and portals. Allstream and Zayo will continue to communicate all updates on the changes you can expect.
What does this mean for Allstream, the company?
Some of Allstream's people will move over to Zayo, but most will stay with the Allstream Business Unit to support Allstream's existing business.
