Frontier Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: FTR), the largest provider of communications services focused on rural America, today announced that customers in select markets can enjoy mobile voice and data services that encompass a broad assortment of AT&T smartphones and access to AT&T’s mobile broadband network.
“Frontier customers in Middletown can now bundle AT&T wireless service with Frontier products and receive a significant monthly bundle discount,” said Don Banowetz, President of Frontier Mobile & On-Network Video. Cellular data plan overage charges are no longer a worry, according to Banowetz. “By using their Frontier Home Wi-Fi with their cell phone, smart phone or tablet - instead of using their cellular plan data - they save and save. And when they want to use wireless data, they now have access to a great network from AT&T. It’s a win-win for customers.”
“We’re thrilled Frontier has chosen AT&T as its provider of mobility solutions,” said Glenn Lurie, president of emerging enterprises and partnerships, AT&T Mobility. “Frontier customers now have access to a wide variety of AT&T smartphones, tablets and applications and the nation’s largest 4G network. It’s amazing to see how wireless technology is transforming lives, especially as we continue upgrading our network and expanding our product lineup.”
In November 2011 Frontier and AT&T Mobility announced a three-year agency agreement which complements Frontier’s robust portfolio of broadband, voice and satellite TV services. The agreement offers Frontier customers the benefits of AT&T’s mobile broadband network and a wide array of wireless devices and applications as part of a Frontier bundle, all on a single bill from Frontier.
Frontier customers who subscribe to AT&T’s wireless services will enjoy access to AT&T’s more than 29,000 Wi-Fi Hot Spots in the United States. Frontier’s broadband, voice and Internet services will continue to be supported by the company’s locally-based technicians and 100 percent U.S.-based workforce.
