    Peter Radizeski:

    Windstream is NOT an MSP. Windstream is a telco – mainly an ILEC (incumbent phone company) but also a competitive phone company. Calling it an MSP confuses the term.

    Joe Panettieri:

    Hi Peter: Windstream certainly is a telco, as you point out. But the company also offers a range of managed services.

    Peter Radizeski:

    True they have a catalog of managed services but they are a Telco through and through. Internet and voice being 80% of its revenue.
