Frontier Communications recently announced 2012 network enhancements and capital investments in Washington state which continue to transform the service areas the company acquired in July of 2010.
According to a release, Frontier offers broadband internet, FiOS video services in certain markets, digital phone service, satellite video through a partnership with DISH, Frontier satellite broadband, customer premises equipment (telephone systems, support for commercial businesses and e911 applications) and web security/data back-up through the Frontier Secure suite of services.
"We're proud we invested approximately $75 million in Washington State during 2012," said Rich Klena, Frontier Senior Vice President and General Manager for Oregon and Washington. "In a tough economy, the company's investment in Washington went up and continues today."
Klena added, "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. 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."
"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," said Klena.
All Frontier services are installed and maintained by the company's 100 percent U.S.-based work force. Frontier has more than 1,200 employees in Washington.
