I would provide 0 for all the 1s above if I could.

I googled Windstream today. I call the number on the screen that says I can
call for internet and phone additions/service. I want to add a phone line to
my existing business account.
I call the number. A man from another country answers. He says he cannot
help me, and gives me the "service" number. I hang up and call the number -
855-575-7607. I need option 3 to add phone service. I press option 3
multiple times, only to have it continue to loop and offer me the same 4
options (this has happened to me on other occasions before today). I call
the first number back from the website, to ask to be connected to someone who
can help me spend more money with a worthless company. This time, I get a
lady from a foreign country. She cannot help me. She says over and again,
that she is not with Windstream....wait, isn't this the number I called from
the Windstream site? She cannot have someone call me back, she cannot
connect me, and she cannot help me. Beyond frustrated at this point. I then
call the local St. Louis number, whereupon I do get an American who provided
the help that was needed in the first place.

Unfortunately, this is not the first massive communication I have had with
Windstream. If I can switch all of our business accounts, I will do that as
soon as possible. If you have a choice, do NOT choose Windstream. Run far
and fast.

See above. Don't use them if possible.

The Skinny

Windstream's Flex Phone service offers unlimited local calling for $35 a month; you also get 100 nationwide calling minutes, with additional minutes in automatic 100 minute increments (of $5 each). With the Unlimited Phone plan, you can pay $50 for unlimited nationwide calling.

Business customers can bundle their internet and phone service together for $100 a month for high speed internet and unlimited local and long distance calling. With this Windstream package (poetically named the Unlimited Local and Long Distance Calling & High Speed Internet package), you also get some value added features, like fax-to-email.

Windstream has an incredible amount of services (really - a lot!) and the prices may vary based on your location. However, Windstream does make one great promise to its residential customers: a Lifetime Price Guarantee. If you bundle digital TV, internet, and phone service, you'll never pay more. We just hope the promise means you won't have your price increase.
