Name That Com­pany

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - BUSINESS -

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?

Think you know the an­swer? We’ll an­nounce it in next week’s edi­tion.
