Unitel Commercial 1990's


Allstream is a business communications provider based in Toronto, Ontario that provides IP connectivity, managed IP services, unified communications, and voice services to its customers across the USA and Canada. The company's headquarters are currently located at 5160 Orbitor Drive in Mississauga, Ontario.

The company traces its history to CNCP Telecommunications, a joint company operated by Canadian National Railway (CN) and Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) since the 1960s. In the 1980s it changed its name to Unitel Communications in a bid to offer commercial long-distance service. The service changed hands several times, for a time becoming AT&T Canada.

Allstream emerged in its current form in 2012 when its latest owners Manitoba Telecom Services (MTS) split off the commercial side of their offerings. Allstream is currently owned by Zayo, a US-based fiber optic network operator.
