Frontier Set To Acquire Verizon Lines

By Staff | Jun 16, 2009

Frontier Communi-cations, in the future, will be the provider of telephone service, broadband, and more in Wetzel County according to Karen Miller, the Communication Manager of Frontier.

Miller spoke by phone to the Wetzel Chronicle describing what will take place that will benefit many in West Virginia.

She explained that this switch could possibly take between nine to 12 months to complete.

Frontier has already been a provider in some parts of Wetzel County for phone service and in these rural areas of Wetzel County and the surrounding areas, high speed internet is available and expanding.

“Rural area customers want the same products and technology as the people living in towns and cities,” said Miller.

“The process does take time,” noted Miller. “We are looking forward to expanding in West Virginia.”

Frontier will acquire approximately 4.8 million access lines from Verizon. This transaction will create the largest and pure rural communications services provider and the nation’s fifth largest local exchange carrier.

Frontier will provide telephone services, high speed internet, and the Dish Network satellite television services. Also they will provide Wi-Fi services and hard drive backup with unlimited tech support too. Bundle price packages will be available to combine phone, internet, and Dish Network programming for a savings.

They will acquire Verizon access lines in Arizona, California, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Washington, Wisconsin, and West Virginia.

Frontier’s Web site, www.frontier.com, explains the services available to those already customers of Frontier and for those future customers of this upcoming transaction between Verizon and Frontier. They can also be reach by calling their customer service number, 1-800-921-8101.
