Windstream worries about CenturyLink/Level 3 billing practices [telecom]

by Sean Buckley
Windstream is concerned that CenturyLink's pending acquisition of
Level 3 could create a larger carrier that will use its broader market
power to engage in unfair billing and payment practices that could
hinder Windstream's rural broadband expansion efforts.
Echoing a similar concern made by fellow telco Frontier
Communications, Windstream said in an FCC filing (PDF) that has found
Level 3 has either been refusing to pay or delaying payment for what
it says is millions of dollars in wholesale services. Windstream added
that it has received a large number of "rate increase notices from
Level 3 that are inconsistent with the company's past practices."
