Spectra Communications Group, LLC is a telephone operating company owned by CenturyLink that provides local telephone service in Missouri.

The company was established in 1999 upon Spectra's purchase of 170 GTE Midwest exchanges from GTE. The company was formed by Atlanta, Georgia-based Spectronics Corporation which became the first African-American owned company to control a US telecommunications company. CenturyTel had a significant investment in the telephone company, which it now owns.[1]

The company provides telephone service in all of the area codes in Missouri with the exception of Area code 314 and Area code 636.[2]
