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.

Zacks Equity Research reports:
“In a concerted effort to deploy rural broadband solutions across the United States, Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. ZAYO recently teamed up with Microsoft Corporation MSFT. Per the deal, Zayo will foster economic development and deliver seamless low-latency core fiber connectivity with a dedicated network infrastructure to some unprivileged communities, backed by Microsoft’s affordable broadband access initiative.
Dubbed Microsoft Airband Initiative, the venture was initiated in 2017 to eradicate the rural broadband gap across the United States, and was expanded worldwide last year. It has been successful in combining private sector capital investments with targeted support from public sector organizations to provide basic employment, education and healthcare amenities to needy communities, with the help of excellent network connectivity.
Given Zayo’s significant presence across Tier 1, 2, 3 and 4 U.S. cities, Airband works with multiple Internet access providers, equipment makers and local entrepreneurs to provide high-speed connection with the help of TV white space spectrum technology. This spectrum band has excellent broadcasting characteristics and large parts of it are unused in rural areas. Currently comprising 10 service provider partners, the Microsoft-backed undertaking aims to augment network connectivity to at least 3 million people in rural America by July 2022. Financial terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.”
