How to Contact Windstream Online

Consumers today are always connected and have therefore come to expect quick, easy access to reliable information online, whenever they need it. That includes information about their phone, cable and Internet service as well as answers to any equipment- and service-related questions they may have. For their part, Internet service providers like Windstream are tasked with keeping their website up-to-date and making sure it is chock full of helpful information about the services they provide and the equipment their customers are using. They are also expected to offer other useful resources for customers seeking support, in addition to their website. Windstream customers with a question they need answered will typically head to the company’s website to find what they are looking for. If they can’t find the right solution there, they expect to have other options available to them for contacting a knowledgeable customer service representative. 

Call Windstream Customer Support

If picking up the phone and calling customer service is your preferred contact method, you can start here. This is probably the most direct way to get the help you need, as long as you don’t mind potentially having to wait for a representative to become available. Depending on when you call and how busy the customer support line is at that time, you could end up being put on hold for a period of time. Fortunately, Windstream has a number of different departments where customer phone calls can be directed, which can help limit your wait time and get you where you need to be faster.

  • For the sales department, dial (866) 445-8084 Monday through Friday, from 8am to 6pm, or on Saturday, from 8:30am to 5pm.
  • For customer service and billing, dial (800) 347-1991 Monday through Friday, from 8am to 6pm, or on Saturday, from 8:30am to 5pm.
  • To make payment arrangements, dial (800) 537-7755 Monday through Friday, from 8am to 6pm, or on Saturday, from 8:30am to 5pm.
  • For technical support, dial (800) 347-1991 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • For an update on your order status, dial (800) 481-5441 Monday through Friday, from 8am to 6pm.

According to the Windstream website, you can expect a thorough response within 24 hours.

The reason many companies choose to include a FAQ page on their website is because it can be infinitely helpful to customers experiencing the same or similar issues and offers customers simple solutions to these issues.
