Frontier Communications has announced 2012 network enhancements and capital investments in Washington state which continue to transform the service areas the company acquired in July of 2010.
Frontier offers broadband, voice, satellite video, wireless Internet data access, data security solutions, bundled offerings and specialized bundles for residential customers, small businesses and home offices and medium and large businesses in 27 states.
"We're proud we invested approximately $75 million in Washington State during 2012," said Rich Klena, senior vice president and general manager for Oregon and Washington, Frontier, in a statement.
Klena said that in a tough economy, the company's investment in Washington went up and continues today.
“During the past two and a half years we built a telecommunications network that makes Frontier broadband available to more than 37,533 additional homes and businesses, expanding availability in our service territory from 85 percent to 92 percent”, he said.
“We are aggressively deploying Metro Ethernet service and Dedicated Internet Access capabilities to serve the growing bandwidth needs of our commercial customers. These services are delivered via Frontier's backbone network which connects to all of the company's central office switching systems," said Klena.
"Our core values are to put the customer first and to be locally engaged in the communities we serve. We have six distinct markets in Washington, each led by a General Manager responsible for the overall customer experience," stated Klena.
Earlier in February, Frontier Communications Corporation had announced the deployment of Wholesale Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) Silver service. EVPL Silver offers point-to-point digital connectivity with standard Ethernet interfaces of 10/100/1000 Mbps and scalable throughput of 1Mbps through a full Gigabit.
Frontier's Wholesale Channel offers EVPL Silver in 23 states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and West Virginia.
