Washington Utilities And Transportation Commission Recognizes That Frontier’s Basic Residential And Business Services Are Subject To Effective Competition

Frontier Communications (NASDAQ: FTR) applauds the decision by the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (WUTC) finding that Frontier faces effective competition with regard to basic residential and business local exchange services.

According to the Order released by the WUTC, “Convergence of technologies, providers, and competition is making historic government regulation outdated, as voice, video, and data are quickly becoming just packets of information carried on the same networks.” In recognition of this marketplace reality, the WUTC agreed that traditional rate regulation no longer serves the public interest and that such regulation “should give way to the discipline of the competitive marketplace.”

Kathleen Abernathy, Frontier’s Executive Vice President for External Affairs, recognized the importance of this decision and said “as pointed out in the Order, there has been a dramatic marketplace and technological transformation that benefits consumers with increased choices and options. CLECs, cable companies, wireless companies, and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers, in addition to traditional wireline incumbents, offer services to both business and residential consumers. The WUTC decision recognizes that regulations should neither advantage nor disadvantage the competitors serving the customers. Consumers will continue to benefit from technological innovation and increased choices.”
