Arkansas telecom firms move ahead with $13 billion merger


Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders and other leaders were reassurred this week that a more than $13 billion merger between Little Rock telecom firms Uniti Group Inc. (Nasdaq: UNIT) and Windstream Holdings Inc. is still on track to create a “national fiber powerhouse.”
