Embarq Minnesota, Inc. is a telephone operating company providing local telephone services in Minnesota owned by CenturyLink.

Sprint Corporation, in 2005, acquired Nextel and changed its name to Sprint Nextel Corporation. The company intended to spin off its wireline assets into a separate company, which in 2006 occurred as Embarq Corporation. The company was renamed Embarq Minnesota, Inc.

Embarq was acquired by CenturyTel in 2009, which in 2010 changed its name to CenturyLink. Embarq Minnesota, at that point, began carrying on business under the CenturyLink name.
