Frontier Communications Sells Its Interest in Mohave Wireless to Verizon Wireless

14:47 EDT Thursday, April 04, 2013

STAMFORD, Conn. (Business Wire) -- Frontier Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: FTR) sold its one- third partnership interest in Mohave Cellular Limited Partnership (“Mohave Wireless”) to Verizon Wireless on April 1, 2013. Verizon Wireless now has 100 percent ownership of Mohave Wireless. Financial terms are not being disclosed.

“During the years in which Frontier was the General Partner, the investments in Mohave Wireless enabled the partnership to provide excellent cell coverage and service in northwest Arizona. Traffic – both voice and data, not to mention car, RV and truck – has grown steadily due to the popularity of Lake Havasu City as a resort, Bullhead City for gaming and Kingman as a business and retirement destination. I am proud that we delivered value year over year to all of the partners in this venture,” said Melinda White, Executive Vice President, Revenue Development for Frontier.

Ms. White added, “We are delighted to have the public opportunity to thank the employees of Mohave Wireless for all they did for their customers and the community. Their experience and dedication will be great assets to Verizon Wireless as it integrates Mohave Wireless. We also applaud Verizon Wireless for adding Mohave to their wireless network in the region.”
