Blumenthal Statement On Frontier Acquisition Of AT&T Assets In CT

(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) issued a statement following the news that Frontier Communications will purchase AT&T’s residential and business wireline assets in Connecticut for $2 billion.

“While this deal may be good for AT&T and Frontier, I want to make sure it is right for consumers. I look forward to reviewing what it means for the people of Connecticut, and I will fight to make sure their interests are protected as DOJ and the FCC review this transaction."

Frontier will be required to file with the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Communications Commission, and Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority to ensure the deal doesn’t violate antitrust regulations.
