Pre-Order Process

The pre-order process takes place prior to ordering services. It is intended for the vendor or provider to ascertain the type of service (facility based, unbundled, network elements, resale, etc.) that Windstream Communication Inc. currently provides to the end user. This request may or may not include service information such as toll restrictions and features. The pre-order process also allows a vendor or provider to validate an end user’s street address. Pre-order is defined by the ordering and billing forum (OBF) as optional.


The CSR information Inquiry is used prior to submitting an LSR to view the end user’s current services. For complete guidelines and rules concerning CSIs, download the Windstream Business Rules for CSI/LSRs.
