Ziply Fiber completes acquisition of Frontier northwest operations

Tuesday 5 May 2020 | 12:51 CET | News
Ziply Fiber has completed its acquisition of the northwest operations of Frontier Communications, first announced almost a year ago. The USD 1.35 billion transaction is funded from USD 2.0 billion the company raised for the purchase and a half-billion dollars of network and service improvements. The closing means that the nearly 500,000 residential and business internet, phone and TV subscribers in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana became Ziply Fiber customers and that network improvements will begin immediately.
