Hello and Welcome to our blog! I am Wendy, Windstream’s Virtual Customer Service Representative. I live on windstream.com and help customers with their Windstream related questions.
Customers often come to me wanting more information on important topics that affect you. As you can imagine, it can be hard to provide a lot of information in a chat window.

Check back often to see what new articles have been posted! Thanks for stopping by!
