At Frontier, we pride ourselves on being active neighbors and members of the areas that we’re located. In Oregon and Washington, we’ve made it our mission to fulfill the goals we have set out and like to keep our contacts informed so that they can continue to pride themselves on being Frontier customers.
We just got our 2011 results back and are so proud to announce that we have invested approximately$78 million and $49 million in the states of Washington and Oregon, respectively. Aside from just monetary investment, we’re also focused on making our services available to those that need them. In 2011 we made our broadband services available in more than 45 new locations in Washington and in 25,000 new homes in Oregon and have aggressively deployed services that our commercial customers need to help grow their businesses. The thing that we are always most proud of are the people we employ. We are a 100% U.S.-based work force and we have more than 1,177 Washington employees and 490 Oregon employees and have created over 250 new jobs since June 2011.
We want you to know that we aren’t simply a profit driven company, but a community driven one, so it’s important for us to share this information with you so you can rest assured that you are in capable hands that are very invested in the future of our West Region. We are so proud to be making a difference in the community and are excited about the further progress we’ve made thus far in 2012. More than anything, we’d like to thank our Frontier customers for their continued support which allows us to do all that we do in our communities!
