During the bankruptcy, the company says it is trying to reorganize itself so that it can move on.
Windstream CEO Tony Thomas said:
"We acted decisively to secure the long-term financial stability of Windstream, and we are confident that after the reorganization we will be even better positioned to invest in our business , expand our speed and capabilities for our customers and compete in the long term. "
Windstream has offices in Syracuse and Manlius, as well as workers in Rochester and Fairport.
In connection with the filing, the company has filed a number of common first day movements.
These proposals will allow the company to continue operating in normal business without interruption or disruption to the relationship with its customers, sellers, channel partners and employees.
The company says it expects to receive court approval for these requests and intends to pay the vendors in full for all goods and services received to Windstream after the filing date.
