Cavalier Telephone Becomes Windstream Communications


Cavalier Telephone has provided telecommunications service since 1998, and currently operates in 16 states across the Eastern US. In 2010, Cavalier was acquired by PAETEC of New York, expanding its service capabilities immensely. As of December, 2011, PAETEC was acquired by Windstream, which currently remains as Cavalier Telephone’s parent company.

Cavalier Telephone still provides residential service to existing customers, but has not accepted new residential customers since late 2011. Their residential services included home high-speed Internet, telephone, and, through a partnership with DISH network, satellite television service.Existing residential customers can maintain their service with Cavalier, though their new focus is on business services.
