Sprint Becomes Embarq


May 24, 2006

A popular telephone company from our area is making a big change. Sprint has switched its name and will now be called "Embarq."

The group used to control the wired-line side of Sprint, but was able to spin off and become independent.

Pat Stutzman of Embarq says local customers can expect some new pricing and packages.

“We will have wireless, data, voice, and entertainment, so we'll have the whole package for our customers in our footprint, in our territory. So, we're very excited about bringing it all together.”

Embarq is now located in 18 different states across the country.
