Frontier Communications To Acquire AT&T’s Wireline Residential And Business Services And Associated Assets In Connecticut

Randall Stephenson, AT&T’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer said, “We are very pleased to have Frontier Communications as the buyer of our Connecticut wireline properties. Frontier has proven both its ability to execute sizeable transactions and a commitment to the communications needs of urban, suburban and rural markets. Frontier has a strong track record of providing high quality service, and we look forward to them doing so in Connecticut after we close this transaction.”

Dan McCarthy, Frontier’s President and Chief Operating Officer, commented, “We welcome Connecticut to the Frontier family and look forward to bringing our high-touch local engagement management model to our home state. We have deep experience in acquiring and migrating large-scale operations onto our networks and systems, adapting them to our sales model, and extending our brand into new communities. AT&T’s Connecticut business is substantial, well-defined and covers nearly the entire state. Based upon our track record, we are extremely confident that we will leverage this opportunity to deliver an excellent customer experience and shareholder value.”

Additional Details on the Transaction

The transaction is subject to review and approval by the U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Communications Commission, the Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority and other state regulatory authorities. Frontier expects the transaction to close in the second half of 2014. Following the close of this transaction, Frontier will operate in 28 states. Connecticut’s urban, suburban and rural markets will complement Frontier’s diverse mix of markets. Frontier will welcome approximately 2,700 employees to our company; the majority are represented by the Communications Workers of America. Frontier already has more than 200 employees at our headquarters based in Stamford, Connecticut. A full conversion of AT&T’s Connecticut operations onto Frontier’s existing systems and networks is planned at the time of close. Frontier has successfully completed numerous complex system and network migrations. Our most recent conversion covered operations across 14 states and was completed approximately one year ahead of schedule.
