Windstream completes acquisition

Windstream, Lexington's local telephone provider, announced Tuesday that it has completed its acquisition of North Carolina-based Lexcom Inc.

The $141 million deal adds about 23,000 telephone lines to Windstream's base. Lexcom also has 9,000 high-speed Internet and 12,000 cable television customers.

Windstream previously said it is financing the purchase through the successful completion recently of a sale of $400 million in bonds.
