Following its 2010 acquisition of Verizon properties, Frontier Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: FTR) has invested more than $37 million to deploy and improve broadband services across Oregon. As a result, the Oregon Public Utilities Commission has released all but $400,000 of the more than $15 million in funds put into escrow by Frontier as a condition of approval of the acquisition. The release of the funds to Frontier is confirmation of the company’s commitment to deploy broadband to unserved and underserved areas and to relieve Internet congestion.
“Frontier is keenly aware of the importance of broadband to Oregon. It is an essential part of the economic engine that drives commerce, education, health care, jobs and more. In 2010, we committed to extending broadband to some very hard-to-reach areas,” said Rich Klena, Frontier’s Senior Vice President and General Manager for Oregon and Washington. “We did what we said we’d do, and we will continue to do our best for the citizens of Oregon.”
