Introducing Your New Frontier Communications
Welcome to the Family
Frontier buys Verizon territories
Frontier Communications, one of the nation’s fastest-growing telecommunications companies, has acquired all broadband and landline services from Verizon in the states of Texas, Florida, and California. Verizon sold these territories to Frontier with the $1.8 billion acquisition allowing Frontier to provide customers with faster Internet services to more households throughout multiple states. The Frontier/Verizon deal ensures that all remaining landlines are upgraded to the latest technology and will provide customers with the best service possible in the new areas.
Using a successful track record of integrating new operations, including significant experience with FiOS systems, Frontier is prepared to introduce customers to a new level of customer service. Frontier is an S&P 500 company, and is featured in the Fortune 500 list of America’s largest corporations. Frontier currently operates in 28 states, and look forward to welcoming new customers and existing Verizon residential and commercial customers in California, Texas, and Florida.
