Name That Company
I trace my roots back to 1930, when the Oak Ridge Telephone Company was bought for $500. Over the years, I bought other telecom companies (such as Qwest, Savvis and Level 3 Communications) and some security businesses, too. I was added to the S&P 500 in 1999. In the early 2000s, I operated in 22 states and was focused on rural markets. Today, headquartered in Monroe, Louisiana, and with a market value recently near $23 billion, I’m the second largest U.S. communications provider to global enterprise customers, serving customers in more than 60 countries. Who am I?
