Our History

Allstream has been meeting the telecommunications needs of business customers for more than 170 years.

Founded to provide telegraph service to Canada’s first transcontinental railroad, the company quickly grew to provide services to destination points spanning 3,100 miles coast-to-coast.

No company lasts that long without knowing a thing or two about innovation.

In 2006, Allstream was the first in Canada to offer a SIP Trunking solution. In 2013, it announced the country’s first hosted collaboration solution, followed in 2015 with the first cross-border HCS.

In 2016, Allstream became part of Zayo Group, and in 2017 Zayo acquired Electric Lightwave/Integra Telecom.

Electric Lightwave/Integra’s entrepreneurial spirit and focus on delighting customers fueled an outstanding network, customer base and product suite over 20 years in a highly competitive market. At the time it partnered with Allstream, it had become the largest regional competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) in the United States.

Today, Allstream is proud of its combined history of innovative firsts and its reputation for delivering the best customer experience among telecom providers.

As it begins writing the next chapter in its storied history, the company is proud of the competitive and innovative approach, spirit and energy it brings to the North American business telecom market.
