Re: Rescission of Notice of Default for Windstream Services,


LLCs 6 3/8% Senior Notes due 2023, co-issued by
Windstream Finance Corp. (the Notes)

Ladies and Gentlemen:

Reference is made to the indenture dated January 23, 2013 between Windstream
Corporation (predecessor to Windstream Services, LLC) and U.S. Bank National Association, as
Trustee, as amended (the Indenture). Aurelius Capital Master, Ltd. (Aurelius), a Cayman
Islands exempted company, is the beneficial holder of more than 50% of the aggregate principal
amount of Notes outstanding and more than 25% of the Notes, inclusive of the notes purportedly
issued by the Company pursuant to certain exchange offers consummated on November 6, 2017,
whose issuance Aurelius maintains is null and void. Initially capitalized terms used herein
without definition have the meaning ascribed to them in the Indenture.

On November 27, 2017, acting as agent of Cede & Co., as Holder of the Notes
beneficially owned by Aurelius, Aurelius served the Company with a notice of default under the
Indenture (the November Notice of Default).

Aurelius hereby gives notice to the Company that it is rescinding at this time the
November Notice of Default. Aurelius is rescinding the November Notice of Default in order to
simplify the procedures and streamline the adjudication of issues before the Court in U.S. Bank
National Association, v. Windstream Services, LLC, No. 1:17 Civ. 07857 (JMF), pending in the
U.S. federal court of the Southern District of New York, in which Aurelius is a counterclaim
defendant and counterclaim plaintiff.

The rescission relates solely to the November Notice of Default, and not to any other
notice of default served upon the Company by Aurelius. Moreover, the rescission does not
constitute, and should not be construed as, a waiver of any of the defaults alleged in the
November Notice of Default.
