Independent telco Windstream Communications has filed a $7 million lawsuit against its former parent firm and fellow Arkansas company Alltel, which is now owned by Verizon Wireless. The lawsuit stems from what Windstream claims were overcharges for usage of Alltel's network going back to 2006. The companies had a mutual call carriage agreement in place.
