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.

There are 6 different types of internet.
Get up to speed on which one is your type.
Uses fiber optic cables to deliver the fastest speeds. Only available in areas that have invested in this costly infrastructure.
Shares technology with the cables uses for cable TV. Fast and readily available in most communities.
DSL or copper
It looks like a phone line, but has slightly different technology running in the Digital Subscriber Line wires. Available through phone services, and offers medium speeds.
Fixed wireless internet is a high-speed internet service for rural and underserved areas. Internet is sent from the main access point to individual receivers installed at businesses, farms, and homes.
LTE stands for Long Term Evolution. This service refers to a 4G wireless standard that provides the fastest internet speeds for smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.
Satellite internet is delivered wirelessly to the receiver, but requires wires to transport the signal. Satellite internet has bandwidth comparable to DSL and cable but can often feel slower due to latency.
Need more information about your area's internet options?
Fiber based internet services are no longer out of reach for typical business owners. While the cost of fiber based internet is still higher than other options, the price is on the decline.
What is lost in hard costs may be made up for in increased speed and productivity.
Fiber has a much higher quality than traditional internet service.
Quality is measured in milliseconds and is referred to as latency and jitter. Fiber optic cabling provides lower latency and lower jitter, and also guarantees certain quality levels are met.
What sets Fiber apart from traditional internet?
Higher upload speeds are a major benefit of using Fiber Internet. Most carriers who provide fiber internet connections have synchronous bandwidth, which means you'll enjoy the same download and upload speeds.
Synchronous bandwidths and faster upload speeds are key for businesses employing remote workers who are sending files and documents to a server or the cloud.
Fiber Internet services are recommended for small to large businesses in any industry relying on the internet to keep operations and sales running smoothly and quickly. Not sure if this is a good fit for you? We can help identify the costs and return on investment.
