From telegraph towers to cloud collaboration.

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.

In 2017 Zayo Group integrated the voice and small business assets of Allstream and Electric Lightwave/Integra Telecom under the Allstream brand and established Allstream as a separate operating subsidiary. Following Zayo Group’s privatization in 2020, led by EQT and Digital Colony, a new board of directors was established for Allstream.
